Yeah, apparently that dude is struggling with some unresolved anger management issues ... I'm sure he meant no offense...

As to your question, I live about 6999.8 km closer to the site than you. The old high school is still standing, but the school year is now over and I've noticed cardboard boxes piling up in the windows...so perhaps demolition might begin soon...?

I should have a fairly spectacular view of this if & when it starts to rise (I'm about a block away)...really looking forward to watching it take shape.

Future hole in the ground:



Looking forward to posting pics of the tower rising - and really hope the tower comes out looking a hell of a lot more like the rendering than the phase 1 building did...(kind of concerned that the http://www.250e57.com/ web site has gone blank...are they trying to distance themselves from the original proposal...?)

Considering that this proposal is in a good neighborhood with many conveniences and the high end residential market is looking up, I'd say this has a good chance of getting a construction loan.

This building is so far east we rarely get updates, so thanks for this. Really excited for this to start rising.

Photo is mine.
