In today's attempt to read the Building Permit
tea leaves, I see that a plumbing and heating company has received a slew of permits along N, Cushing, and First streets
, where Willco Construction is planning a 500,000-square-foot office/residential/retail project. I'm not an expert in these things, but a few years of watching the flow of permits has shown me that plumbing and heating companies get permits to shut off the pipes prior to buildings being demolished, and these addresses do have raze permits approved for them. Details about the Willco project
are few, and there's been no announcement of any start date.
And now that 55 M
's construction has mostly obscured these lots from the view of the Half Street web cam
, I'm hoping those of you at NGA and 80 M Street with bird's eye views of these spots can drop me a line
if you see any demolition happening.
