Yep, if you look at the second to last photo you can make out Washington street heading downhill. I think it's like an 11' grade difference from one side of the lot to the other.

It should be about that. If you parked your car on the bottom level, it was one story up to the second level. If you walked up the stairs, you were again at ground level.

so which side do they count the building height from? Magnolia or the street bordering the M?

Barriers were dropped off at the site today. These are to close westbound Washington from Palmetto to Magnolia. Closure was supposed to run today until 4/8.

This question must be the reason why they are listing the height from sea level.

Barriers were placed on Washington today. Also a small amount of demoltion has been done to the edge of the old parking deck. People are always working on this site now. This is awesome!!

Yeah, except that at the rate this project is shrinking, it's going to be 295' by the time it tops out. :(;)

this project is particular is huge, b/c its not condo-- its a corp. relocation (albeit from a few block or miles away); that's a big deal. its like CNL II was, to an extent.

There is something about a corporate highrise that is more exciting than condo.

This building would look so much sleeker if they'd get rid of those "saddle bags" on the lower half. Looks like a gal with a fat bottom. Oh well, too late to complain now.

"Little in the middle but she got much back!" [whip crack]

Great, I'll never see this building the same way again. Perhaps they will play it in the lobby,

The site pretty much looks like the last pics taken by Tim3167. Overall, the project is progressing well. Like the last post said, there is a lot of augercast placement going on, thats basically it.
