Can someone help? I've read the FAQ section, and attempted to add the pics a number of times but to no avail. I'll edit this post and add the pics once I figure out how to do this.

Sorry for the initial tease

P.S. I'll be taking pics every 1-2 weeks depending on progress at the site and will add onto this thread.
hi add your pictures to a site such as www.photobucket.com then you can add the code in your reply. let us know if this helps. I'd love to see your shots

Thanks Chicagophotoshop! That site did the trick.

Photos taken on 9/16/2007 (sorry, not the best shots as I pulled over really quick on my way to the office - they'll be better next time around):

LOL, will do Captain. Next time I'll spend a little more time getting some decent angles and shots in. I'll post again in a week or two.

I got over the fence this time, but way too many materials and supplies are in the area so it's tough to get good angles and wide shots from the ground. I'll have to start climbing on top of equipment & trailers next time.

New pictures taken at 10:00 AM on 9/23/2007:

Who the hell is the builder for this? What a disastrous job-site!

A lot of the links to the pictures in here are broken, here are some I found about this project

View of the artistic rendering:


Here is the building that was replaced by this condo building (Although it looks like it is in the picture above):

No, that loft bulding is not being torn down. It is the Bowne Building, located at the southeast corner of Ohio Street and Orleans Street.

Am so confused. I thought this was being built in a Parking lot that has been open for years? That building on the same lot to the west use to have a restuarant/bar in it which I could see change through out the years. So are they going to be tearing that building down (same lot west of the present building sight)?

I went by this daily on the brown line. I remember the lot and when I saw them rip it up and start doing prep work thinking "thank god".

I'm pretty sure they didn't tear anything down, but I was out of town for 9 weeks this summer, and could have missed something.
