Some of the seafoam green panels are underpayment, and there is a slightly darker seafoam panel that is the finish.

On that last picture, I believe the seafoam green around the door is a permanent color, and the seafoam green on the right is an under layer.

It’s a touching little memorial. So very sad it happened.

I didn't get a picture because I was driving, but the scaffolding is down and the roofline appears to be repaired. The top floor windows still need to be replaced.

I also noticed the Google-colored panels are almost all in place on the lakeside of the final building. Red, Blue, and Orange (or yellow?). Just waiting on Yellow (or green?)! Now ready for retail. Hmm. Seems Amazon always has all their retail tenants lined up and in buildout mode at this point.

There is a mobile crane/tower crane hybrid on site today. Could it be replacing damaged HVAC equipment? With binoculars I can see the workers milling about on the roof with a lot of pipes exposed, I would assume my initial HVAC guess is accurate.

That isn’t how we operate here. You stop your car and take a picture, the people behind you will understand.

Oh no, no. One or two give brief visual commentary and then one or two with the equipment and skill set go take pics and post here.

Thanks in advance!

I think retail on the north side of Mercer will be a really hard sell if it's expecting walk-in customers to come from south of Mercer. I cross Mercer fairly often these days by bus, bike and walking. It's a pain and slow. I've come up with some tricks like biking up and over via Eastlake when not far out of my way, crossing Mercer on bike by biking with Mercer traffic for a block and getting into the left turn/crosswalk to finish the crossing. Restaurants with a view of the lake might survive but might depend on sun/shade options since they'll be on the cooler/shadier side of the building and not everyone is mhays who wants shade.

Amazon buildings are probably more attractive for restaurants because they don't have free or subsidized food for employees, unlike Google.

You're right about the isolation. The key to success is businesses (restaurants especially) that have a following already like, say, Skillet. Wonder if Daniels might consider a move at least temporarily while its current locale gets a makeover.

Funny. The retail on Dexter at the Facebook building all gave up (Pot Belly likely on its last leg). I walk by here in the evening often and see a high percentage of works leaving for the day with food to go. Despite their six-digit salaries, why not??

So many buildings on Mercer are extremely forgetful, but these two buildings are some of the most attractive buildings in the city.. I'm hoping the empty block to the west will continue to exhibit first rate architecture. It is architecture that can transform a neighborhood.

The westernmost of Vulcan's three Lakefront Blocks was originally going to be similar to these two, but with more residential use. It seems like Vulcan is focused else at the moment and I haven't seen any permit related activity on the final block in years. With the old Guitar Center site supposedly getting started this fall, I think this site is going to remain construction staging and parking for quite a long time.
