Project Construction photos

Recommended Posts

Up on the main Downtown Construction threads, someone asked about current project updates. Since I was downtown today, I thought I'd share some fresh (3-5-05) construction photos.

Don't get too excited though. Nothing is very far along yet.

Fidelity doesn't screw around. I think this is prep work for the 8 floor office/2 floor garage.

The Fidelity parking garage is going to be huge.

I have no clue what this construction fence is for on Riverside Av. (doesn't it look like any awful generic suburban area?). I hope it's MarksGray, but I suspect it might just be more DOT nonsense.

Great updates. I agree, it looks like Fidelity means business. There was a newspaper article about the project being approved by the DRC and then...bam, construction immediately started.

Also on the Southbank, its going to be pretty cool seeing multiple cranes at San Marco Place, The Peninsula, The Strand & San Marco Riverwalk Hotel, all within a blcok of each other. I think the best view will probably be I-95 heading North.

OMG, I knew Riverside Avenue was bad, but I didn't know it was THAT bad. I hope that the median won't be like that, just suburban grass.

Other than that, great pics!

In regards to Fidelity, no they don't screw around - They have about 300 people in leased office space in Deerwood (because they are at capacity) that will eventually be moved to Riverside Avenue. Not to mention, the quarters in the current offices are extremely tight. I know that the people in my girlfriend's department (she works in the Tower on the campus) don't have a whole lot of room, but there is nowhere to go.

That Fidelity parking garage is real close to Riverside Ave. and very monolithic. Are there any plans for ground floor retail in that building? Hopefully it will be more attractive when it is finished.

If you don't mind I'll add to the list. Here are some pics I took this past weekend around Hemming Plaza & Adams Street.

No construction here, just a cool pic

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

When I was there over the summer, coming across the Fuller Warren you could see cranes working on a building somewhere near the mid-rise condo in the background of this photo. Do you guys now what I'm talking about? Is the development that I saw going up residential or commerical?

More great pics, thanks Lakelander.

My controibution isn't a pic but a webcam. We should be able to watch most of the soutbank from it.

Click refresh to see the latest view. The camera pans to 5-6 shots.
