Three weeks is way too long to go between updates when a building skeleton is on its way up, so seeing 909 New Jersey
now starting its 11th story is a bit of a shock. The latest photos on the project page
capture the building from all angles (and show that the facing work is already starting on the lower floors), and the Expanded Gallery
includes photos from farther away showing the impact 909's rise is having on the Near Southeast skyline. This 237-unit rental building will have 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and is expected to be completed next year.
And, on the pages for both 909 NJ page
and its siblings 70 and 100 I
, I've now added a few more "old" photos of the lots before they were bought and cleared. I've been so focused on matching before-and-afters, which is simplest when done standing at intersections, that I've forgotten how many mid-block photos I used to take, especially waaaaaaaaay back during 2003 and 2004 (heh). As always, let the
icon be your guide for the latest additions to the project pages, and use the
icon wherever you see it to view all photos in the archive from a certain vantage point.
