Update: Zara, Victoria, Ritz

Scaffolds and wooden storefronts are popping up aplenty along Michigan Avenue.  In the photo above you can see workers putting together the temporary facade for Zara’s new store to open in what was once the Chicago Place mall.

A block away, demolition is complete at the location of what will become the Ritz-Carlton residences, so that means pedestrian access has been restored to the west side of the Boul Mich.

And a block in the other direction, a massive wooden edifice has been erected while workers put together the new Victoria’s Secret store.  Peeking behind the barricade, it looks like they’ve still got a long way to go.
