Gigantic banner is going up right now on the parking garage to the south of this site with a rendering of the project and leasing information. This thing is about 3 stories tall.

Drove by it last night, only had part of the banner up, hopefully they will finish it today. I just wish they would break ground. So anxious for this project

I wish it was at least taller than the Hilton next door... Even at the current height, it will still be a great addition to Wisconsin Ave.. More density on that street will be good to form a main-drag of downtown.

I heard from a very high up source that the city is close to offering a TIF package for this one...

I walked past the banner just now ... wow. This is a good sign (pun intended) that the developer is jumping headfirst into getting this project completed.

I was under the impression that it was going to be taller than the hilton; did they scale down from the original plan?

Interestingly enough, for the time being the banner has been removed...

Double-you tee eff? That can't be good. I drive in that area a couple times a week, I'm surprised I never saw it while it was up.

All of that wind last week tore it up. Not sure if it will go back up, but definitely not a reflection on the status of the project.

They're still in the behind-the-scenes type stage, trying to work out deals for public financing, figuring out how to revise the design to accommodate retail frontage along Michigan Street/parking garage, looking for more anchor tenants, getting all their ducks in a row, so to speak...stuff that's not really ready for the public eye yet.

There's also the promotional website for the proposal to drum up interest.

When they've got something really newsworthy for the public, you'll read about it in the papers and on the website, so just be patient and keep an eye out.

I was afraid of hearing that type of news...but thanks for forth coming with what you know, or don't know.

Not sure what there is to be afraid about. Progress is indeed being made, the progress status I mentioned above was reported just a few weeks ago in the Business Journal. Expect to hear more about it as the City considers a TIF this summer.

This is my favorite project and I've heard almost nothing about it lately. Please tell me it's not going to fall through!
