Update from Hogan:

"Construction Update

Because of numerous delays due mainly to City planning review and architectural and engineering issues, the original estimated May 2006 completion date has been re-evaluated. The first five buildings in the complex have been through the City review process and construction should be starting soon. A revised estimate of completion for the entire project is between October 2006 and March 2007. With a project of this scope that involves as many city and state agencies as this one, unforeseen delays require a large estimation window. As construction progresses, completion date estimates will be updated and the window will be narrowed. "

I assume the engineering delays they mention have something to do with the 30 foot pile of boulders on the corner of N. Main and Croft. I am very excited about the progress, and can't wait to see the first building going up.

Thank you for the update, wellen! :D

I had been wondering why this project wasn't moving along any quicker, but your post explains it pretty clearly.

I got the same letter yesterday as well. I can not decide if it is good or bad news.

If you get into the residential part of North Main, then you go down a hill and if you look left there is a flattened area of red dirt that is long and skinny. Past the red dirt is a park. The red dirt is this project isn't it?

Correct. It is at the corner of N. Main and Croft. One block north of Earle St.

"If you are not living life on The Edge, you are taking up too much room"

Could be a good motto for the project.

Anyone know what's going on with The Edge? I live a few blocks over and haven't seen (or heard) any work going on for the past week or so.

The builder said they are negotiating contracts for the remaining work. He said that they should be doing the plumbing in a couple of weeks and then start framing.

Hogan told me today that they have just recently gotten final mechanical drawings, and hope to finish up the foundations in the next few weeks. Framing to start in December and complete by June-August 2007. Please note the auction for this was in April 2005.
