    Has anything started going up on the site yet? Have they poured any concrete? Or is it still a vacant dirt lot?

    I've not seen any photos of anything other than the empty dirt plot.

    I'd assume the first signs of construction would be movement on the plot across the street (between Plaza and MSS) where they will be stockpiling materials and putting up project office buildings (whatever the American generic term is for what we'd called Portakabins).

    Perhaps we should make it a requirement that all Downtown Trip Reports include a photo of these sites :)

    Maybe the equivalent to portakabins is construction trailers.

    Saw some pilot(?) holes in the ground when taking a picture from the California pool. I'll see if I can find it from mid July.

    The approvals from the city are ready to go, it's all about the financing. I don't doubt it will happen.

    Can thread titles be edited?
    What’s the possibility of changing the title to: THE OFFICIAL 18 FREMONT CONSTRUCTION PICTURE UPDATE THREAD.
    Then all of us who inhabit downtown can snap pictures when we’re there and post them throughout the construction period keeping everyone updated on the progress.

    So far with one hole there not much to post as of yet but you can always start a thread of pics of the construction of something like that.

    I'll be at the QQQQ towards the end of September. Hopefully there will be something to take a picture of other than a hole in the ground.

    Ok I’ll start a new construction thread.
    Not to redirect or hijack but I think it would be pretty cool to have a running pictorial thread of the progress for the next several years.
    There appear to be enough downtown members here to update pictures every few weeks.
    Let’s see how it goes.

    I was downtown last week and talked to some workers at the D and they told me construction will begin in a hurry once a year and day rule goes into affect. He is trying to avoid building into a union is what I heard/understood.
