regarding 500CM, what further can they do now that there's an objection over its construction by Caltrans? I see they're excavating, but at which point must they stop because of this bureaucratic mess? Great shots. I love how fast 621 is going up.

That's a good question. I have no idea. Maybe someone out there can let us know.

I'm sure we have all heard what SEIU did to the Sutter project...

Its not all doom and gloom , city council said Ok yesterday to the Aura loan if i heard it on NPR right .

Im sure we all hold hope that the towers will rise , but from the start it was ambitious . i still hold hope . I cnt help but wonder if he built the twins in phase ( 1 @ a time) if the same troubles would be dogging the project .

I have never been a fan of SEIU , not just because of their constant interferences (dont get me started ).

Yeah, Aura got a loan with the understanding that they need to do allot of work in a short amount of time to get the money. That project has been stalled for almost a year, I'll get excited and believe it when the site is fenced off and piles are being drilled into the ground.
