Status Update: Block 37

Work continues on Block 37 / 108 North State / Daley Mills, or whatever it is you want to call the new mall in the very heart of the Loop.  Or does it?

The work must be going on inside because there’ plenty of activity, but little change to those of us on the outside.  The sidewalks remain closed.  Lanes of traffic remain blocked.  And as far as the untrained eye can see things haven’t changed much in months.

Again, that doesn’t mean that progress isn’t being made.  It just means there are few outward signs of it.
