MILWAUKEE | The Edge | Com

"The Edge" officially broke ground today. The architecture could make for some interesting construction updates.

Yea I'm trying to keep up with a bunch of projects... it's fun to see as things slowly evolve. The North End is really interesting as it slowly comes down.

Twoaday, have you been updating the progress? I looked on your flick page and it doesn't seem like you have added anything new for a while.

Ok i got out a took a couple photos today of the edge (as well as a few other projects). Looks like things are moving but slowly at the edge though it has been my experience that foundation work takes awhile and then things get really moving

Especially with the ground being frozen and all the snow. Not a good time to be starting foundation work. This scene might not change much until Spring.

Well I did take the picture on Sunday. Actually I believe all these project will continue working even through the snow as the Breakwater and the Staybridge haven't stopped

It's really awesome to see how you guys still build during all the snow, something we don't need to worry about here in Florida.

I like the project, but it seems that they could had added a couple more floors to it, 6 justs seems too little for that sight, espicially being near the river with a great view.

It was originally planned to be taller but the neighborhood on the top of the hill fought them over the height.

Considering the plans for the area envisioned it to be a relatively (2-3 stories) low rise area, the building is high enough. It doesn't overwhelm the neighboring buildings along commerce street and it won't ruin the views from the park above.

Another plus is that it won't eat up all the demand for units in the area, ensuring we will see more buildings going up soon. Perhaps we'll be seeing this going up this summer - http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=475816
