That is good news about the facade. I somehow missed that paragraph when I was reading it.

Construction since the fire begun a few weeks ago. They have been moving fast with repairs along senate street. It looks like most of the building facing Michigan and Senate was saved.

I'm excited about this one. Hopefully this time we will have better luck.

Yeah, I just noticed that today as well. The top floor repair along Senate is moving fast. They've also resurfaced the parking garage exterior in some way, so that's apparently been saved.

The web of tubing and equipment for drying out the main building is gone.

This is purely a guess, but given all the work that's been going on at the main building and almost nothing on the rest of the site, I think they're working to get that building finished and opened first. Then they'll work on rebuilding the rest of the project.

In terms of visible external work, it's been pretty quiet there for a while. Nothing rebuilt on the canal and nothing next to the Historic Landmarks Foundation parking lot. I imagine they're working on refitting all the internal stuff that was damaged by the fire and water in the building they saved.

I get the impression that F&C has pumped their own money into the cleanup and current rehab work. They might be waiting on insurance money before they proceed with rebuilding the other sections.

The sidewalks are in on the Michigan/Senate corner. The Senate sidewalk is much less deep than the Michigan sidewalk and features nose-in angled parking. The Michigan sidewalk has several built-in squares with grates for trees near the curb.

I stopped by here last night on my way home from class at IUPUI. I drive by it on the way in everyday (yes I drive since I live up north)

I didnt realize until looking at the camera this morning, that I had autofocus turned off. So if some of the pictures look soft, that is why. But I was able to grab a couple that show off how things are looking there.

The one thing that struck me was that I ran into 2 police officers watching the grounds. I guess they dont want to see anything happening around there huh? I wasnt hassled as I wasnt causing a nuisance, but I sure was getting eyed. LOL

the other thing I saw was that they have started rehab on the building across Senate from the cosmo on whatever that cross street is. There is a big sign up on the side that says "upscale renovation underway"

Alright, enough talk. Onto the photos.

That "upscale renovation" sign you saw was probably for this:

Thanks for the pics.

It was overcast and drizzling a little. I was using a slow shutter to capture it. The light reflects easy on the clouds when you are in the city

Curb-side trees are in on the Senate side. Interestingly, they also put in some large patches of grass. Seems like a strange choice, but I suppose it will help with some rain run off.

This stretch of Senate from Michigan to Walnut is being nicely transformed right now:
  • The curbs, parking spaces, streetlights, and trees are in by the Cosmo.
  • The Senate Manor refurb is in full swing, with an exterior paint job, window replacements and some landscape work.
  • The Cultural Trail Senate/Walnut intersection is being redone with curb bumps so that people only have to cross the two travel lanes on Senate.
It may not sound like much, but this area "feels" much different than it did even a month or so ago. I've got a set of photos of the Cultural Trail in this area that I should be able to get up sometime this week, but maybe I should also do a photo spread of these two blocks.

I was out for a run near the Cosmopolitan and I noticed this sign in front of the parking lot just south of Cosmopolitan... I dont know how long it has been there, but it's interesting. I think its probably just testing the water and doesn't mean much but at least someone is thinking about it!

Anyone have any thoughts or info?

Now that I look at the picture a little closer... the phone number might be the same as the decal on the window of the Cosmopolitan retail. It might just have been for the Cosmopolitan even though it is across the street.
