Endeavor/1200 Broadway, 27 stories, residential/office/retail

according to this rendering and the progress it looks like they're wrapping up the base portion of the Tower and working on the high-rise portion now or next week or two

Skyhouse would have looked large at this location but this Tower will be a Monster

Can't wait for the day that these utility lines are buried. Boggles my mind the city does not require the developer to work with the utility companies to bury these. Funny how much more presence this thing has in the render knowing that they aren't showing any of those dangling utility lines.

I have seen it mentioned here in various post that the underground utilities is not going to happen any time soon. Something about adverse cost. I might be misinformed, but I do recall many people advocating the idea. Heck, I lived in Oxford GA for 5 years and all of the utilities in our rural subdivision were underground.

Its always going to be more expensive to bury the utilities than not, but I personally believe it is more of a necessity for cities. It sucks that the people in charge believe that this will effect development that much, these development groups have so much money that moving a couple utility lines isn't going to kill their plans. Especially these corporate relocations. Alot of residential subdivisions are going that route, it is much more aesthetically pleasing and more reliable because storms have less of an impact on them.

It’ll be more expensive short term, but long term it would save all parties involved some money. Less power outages not having to worry about down poles and lines or any kind of ice related incidents during the winter.

Now's the time to do it though. If they are buried while everything is under construction then the cost is a whole lot less than if they try to bury them once everything is in place.  It kind of like running speaker wire in the walls of your house....if you do it before the drywall goes in it is much, much cheaper than if you wait to do it until after the drywall is in and the walls are painted.

Ah, so that's what that thing was. I'd never seen a crane disassembler, but there it was just lounging as I was doing my rounds this morning.

I think they use those for assembling them too. 

 

Does the removal of this crane mean that the construction of the garage is mainly done and it’s mostly just the tower now?

While driving from the Broadway split down the hill toward I-40 and downtown, I realized that this building changes that approach so much.
