The crane is coming down today.

It will be interesting to see if the crane goes up a few feet over to start work on the next building.

They brought in a new section last week. This leads me to believe that they might well rebuild the crane a few hundred feet over just like you said.

Could be that was to be the base of the relocated crane, so they can probably just build the new crane as they dismantle the old one. No need to even put the tower segments on the ground.

Drove past it today and it doesn't look like a new crane is going up, which is weird since there are two more towers planned for this site.

Two? Wasn't there like 5 in total planned at one point?

Three more.
The current plan is four towers.

Started at five, then went down to four, there was a render with only three visible and presently the developer web site only mentions one building. We shall see.

Anybody able to snap some updated pics of the site / building? How is that courtyard coming along?

It's pretty much still a building in a construction site.
No terribly exciting differences from the last couple of photo updates

I would imagine the courtyard will be the last thing to be finished when all 4 buildings are complete.

Looks like this first building is called "Blair House" as a part of the Phillip Square development

Phillip st is going to be radically different when comparing 2010 to 2020.

Finally enough of a difference to warrant a photo update
