Does anyone know if there is a WebCam for this project?

Pretty sad. I like the design of the new building, and I'm glad to see more intensity coming to the block overall, but it sucks to lose this beautiful landmark on the street. Age is similar to most of the buildings that were destroyed for the downtown era urban renewal (about 60 years old). Obviously some are more or less lovable or functional than others, but it starts to feel like that's just our attention span.

I love it. Yeah, I was walking by and knew that view will probably only last another month or so before they started putting up walls.

I usually take the express buses between Hopkins and downtown for the past four months. But the couple times I’ve had to take the 12 I’ve gotten to see this and I like it.

This is kinda interesting - the developers bought out the entire condo building at 3014 Holmes (2.5 story, 10 units, built 1926). That's a good thing since the development fully surrounds and towers over this building on 3 sides. They are currently using the building as their construction offices. Once the project is complete, I'd guess they will either hold the building as rentals or sell it whole as an apartment building, rather than sell as individual condos again. I'm betting on the 1st option - they'll just incorporate the building as part of the overall development...possibly giving future renters here access to the amenities, etc.
