The Hudson

Last year for a quick few weeks, ground was broken at this Powerhouse Arts District site for the Hudson, part of the Provost Square development. Then after a few pilings were pounded into the ground, construction stopped. This was back during the fifty degree days, so weather probably did not play a factor. Rumors have been circulating that the Toll Brother's planned 40 story towers for the Manoschevitz factory lead the developers of Provost Square to rethink their plans and seek height extensions. Perhaps that explains their construction delay. In either case, the dirt has shifted a bit since last we posted about the Hudson:

One of the few pilings hammered into the ground stands waiting its siblings.
