Yes, it's being hollowed out and incorporated into the complex.

I'm glad they're keeping that beautiful façade, and anxious to see this tower going up.

A terrible cell phone picture, but still, so beautiful.
Does the crane mean we can move this to the highrise construction thread?

Good to read that. It is definitely worth preserving and the combination with the modern tower seems to work out very well.

Yeah, no way a local landmark like the old Filene's department store was going to be completely demolished.

Thank GOD! During my last co-op I had to transfer at downtown crossing everyday, and everytime I walked outside I was reminded of how big of a shithole downtown crossing is. This development should help dramatically alter DC.
