Tower Crane Ahoy!

News arrived this weekend that the tower crane permit has reached the City and we are entering the final stages in advance of the new development coming to 4600 Marine, formerly known as the mostly empty Weiss Hospital south parking lot. 

We have been watching with interest as things have slowly progressed towards full construction. While most permits are already approved, a few are still pending as of this week. In the interim, the gas tanks used for the Hospital were drained in advance of removal and the parking lot was cordoned off this past week, resulting in the empty lot shown above.

In the place of the old tanks, which were located in a small brick structure on the northeast corner of Wilson and Clarendon, the Hospital has built a brand new gas storage and delivery system on the northern edge of the property, just across from the Hospital emergency room entrance. 

With the demolition and tower crane permits pending approval, a construction start is likely by fall. We can't wait!
