The site is being prepared for excavation. A drilling machine has started work and there is a pile of steel piles ready to go.

Crazy to me that this one is underway. For some reason I never thought it would actually happen.

It took a back seat to the Barrel Yards for a long time, but it finally made it to the top of their priority list. The Alexandra project will probably be much later, though (after Schneider's?) given the amount of space they now have just a few blocks away at the Barrel Yards.

Was work at the Barrel Yards ever been fast? Any slower and they'd stop completely.

In all seriousness though, there seems to be a very slow and steady pace anytime I am by there. I am always tempted to take a picture, but can't really see any change from the last time I was there so I don't see the point. I am sure there is lots going on that just can't be seen from the perimeter of the site. It is amazing that they can get renters to pay those prices to live on a construction site for 5+ (10?) years.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

I’m not that surprised. The renters are really living next to, not on, a construction site, and precisely because it’s so slow I doubt it makes much noise. So really it’s just that the lot behind their building looks a bit messy. For most of them I suspect they and their guests can enter the building without even going near the construction.
