If you look in the city documents for the CPM north loop office building they do a good job of highlighting this rail corridor and have pictures of it and such.

If you stand in the alley rail corridor, the City Hall clock tower is nicely framed at the end of the vista.

Yep, they are working with the neighborhood opposition and city to try and get through all of that as smoothly as possible.

This came back to the neighborhood board tonight for an update. Sounds like they worked out all the issues with the neighbors who opposed it. They are looking to put a few curling lanes in the plaza that would have cooling coils and be available to the public. Neighborhood voted to support it.

Curling like the Olympic sport? Will they provide stones?

Yes like the Olympic Sport. Not sure how it will be managed yet but they mentioned creating a North Loop Curling Club. I am guessing stones will be provided...maybe for rent?

I work across the street and nothing seems to have started. I also heard about the June 30th date for parking to end and the lot is still being used. Anyone know what's going on?

They delayed a month. Now it is supposed to start first week in August but that news is a couple weeks old so not sure if it is being pushed further. I do know architects are full time finishing up drawings.

This is a huge site. I walk by it everyday but to see it all fenced off makes me realize how much of a hole this will fill in the neighborhood.

O/T, but has anyone heard anything lately about CPM's "rival" office/parking project a few blocks away? Both projects were approved, appealed, and re-approved kind of around the same time last year. It's fair to assume that both spec projects were chasing some of the same prospective tenants, and that United's project won out. Is the CPM/Swervo project still happening?

I don’t know if that other project is still going, but 729 is only kind of a spec project. They secured a (growing) tenant last December: Ovative/group, which plans to have 180-ish jobs by the time it moves into the building.
