Groundcrew is an amazing studio for VO and radio spots. When I worked in advertising, we used them all the time. Great group of people, neat studio, and they don't need to go anywhere just because they appear out of place now? They have been there for years.

While it sounds like Groundcrew Sound does great work (and they get excellent reviews on Google Maps), I still can't get over the fact that their building looks borderline abandoned. 

Others must agree too, considering that that their back parking lot is a favorite destination for hotboxing vehicles and illegally dumping trash into the Groundcrew Sound dumpster. 

I recognize the value that Groundcrew Sound brings to the business community, but aesthetically, their entire property looks to be in a state of disrepair.

FYI - I hope you guys like.  Attending this cost me a parking ticket.... Sorry for the bad resolution.  His represents Portman's Total Build-Out Capacity for the lot.  Around 16/17 Stories tall,

That said, I think they are moving out and a restaurant is taking the space (The Roasting Company I think)

Ground crew was the hold out for that property not selling correct? If ground crew moves out, I can imagine (as property prices rise, something gets built there. There is enough space for a condo tower one day.

There was an “incident”

CATS was single tracking so at least one track of electric is still working.

Any idea what that is?  Did it fall from the building or get dropped by a crane?

No idea. I was walking past after it fell. 

since no Cat wires appear to be affected I am guessing the form slid off the building and landed on the containers protecting the rail trail  before bouncing into the tracks.
