Yay so 3 (or 4) cranes up in DTR soon. Hotel, Seaboard, and 400H.

When though. There’s not even any pre-construction surveying of this property. Probably some unannounced delays.

This one too?

Maybe the Madison as well?

Are you saying the projection of beginning construction in November, the utility work from the last few months and the demolition may be to just wait? Maybe we’re getting our projects mixed up? I’m pretty sure the Cabarrus project is full tilt. Not sure if construction permits have been issued, but shouldn’t be far off at all.

Oh sorry mixed up with Salisbury Square.

Oh, I wish that was getting some traction!

Were all of these demolitions waiting until fall started?
I’ll see myself out.

The Berkeley Cafe’s building is owned by the Raymond Group, the same people building the hotel at Dawson & W Martin (the adjacent vacant lot). They’re currently seeking a rezoning of their property to accommodate 40 stories (DX 40-SH-CU) as they figure out whether they want to continue with the current Hotel plan or flip the property to another builder. That rezoning process is just getting going and they held the initial public hearing in early August. The Berkeley Cafe’s building is included in this rezoning, so you can determine for yourself what that likely means for the old building.

That is too bad, imo.

They’re putting in the pool already!!!
:rofl:


Actually they just pulled a tank out and are compacting the backfill.

And good news! The crane situation has been resolved and they will not need to use two cranes. They’re just moving the location of the 1. Also, over the next couple of weeks they will finish the ground prep and start drilling for the foundation.

@GucciLittlePenguin and I love those! Such a cute little piece of construction equipment! :grin:

Glad to hear about the crane issue resolution, and excited that this terrible corner is finally moving forward! Even if it’s just a giant Chick-Fil-A…

Those are awesome! I am preparing a proposal for an excavation at one of my drycleaning sites. I hope the subcontractor brings one of these along for compacting the backfill. They are fun to watch :slight_smile:

Those things have been a part of my daily life since June (I have front row seats to the W Cabarrus project). They’re pretty fun to watch.
