As i was reading the new issue of indianapolis monthly today, It said 3mass was scheduled for completion and occupancy in spring of 2009 - seems much more realistic

They've installed a big crane today. I've got a pretty decent view of it but it's not as good as SpiderMonkey's.

I was so busy that I didn't realize they were putting it up until about an hour ago. I took a few pics and will post them in a little bit.

I don't know why that first picture is posting that way. I have tried getting it turned but no luck so far.

Kick ass shots SpiderMonkey!

It looks like some real progress is being made at the site now. I see foundation and parking garage work underway!

All day I wondered what that thing was. Took until this afternoon to realize it was a crane. Bet Todd Mauer was watching out his office window at Indiana Square.

Todd may have been thinking,"Mmm, should I reface the lower part of this building to match the rest?"

They have really been bringing a lot of materials the past 2-3 days. Mass ave. has been littered with trucks unloading steel and many other supplies. They are really picking up the pace. Hopefully they will be above ground soon. I'm impressed with how quickly the pace has changed with the project.

This is a poured concrete building with steel supports?

I'm so glad this building is going to be a mid-rise. I was driving west across town on New York and noticed it's going to make a significant impact on the cross-town view:

The flat-iron on the corner of Mass/Delaware/New York is three stories high. (It's right under the stoplights and right-turn-only sign below)

3 Mass goes up 6 stories before setting back the next 5 for a total of 11. From the renders I've seen, I'm guessing its highest point will come close to touching the bottom of the 4th stoplight from the right.
