Last time I was through there, a couple weeks ago, it was still a pit, with nothing much to see inside.

Can someone explain what's happening here and why? (Is the rest of the building going to be wood-framed?)

That's the central elevator core.
The rest is likely going to be steel frame, the same as the other buildings on the block.

Markster (or another mod), maybe this thread title should now actually say "under construction" instead of "proposed"? Smile

Judging from the doorways on different sides, I think it's a fire escape. It's too big to be an elevator core for a three storey commercial building. You could fit four elevator shafts in it.

That too. When I say "elevator core", I mean a concrete column to house elevators and stairwells.

Like this:
   

But.... the access holes and overall size certainly do make me doubt whether the one in question contains an elevator.

I was in the area of this last night and I saw openings suitable for elevators on the side facing Willis Way. It looks like 2 shafts. I think the openings we see in the photos are just for stairs. I assume they need 2 sets of stairs for fire safety?

I don't have any new photos but walked by there last night and there's just 2 of those concrete elevator things.
