Status Update: Things Coming Together at Block 37

Things are starting to come together at Block 37/108 North State.  After more than two years of disarray, the ground floor of the building is starting to make sense to the casual observer.
Some of the barriers have been lowered so we can get a peek at what’s going on.  The near completion of the sidewalks is a good sign that most of what is left to do is cosmetic and interior.  With glass walls marking entrances it’s easier to get an idea of what the finished project will look like.  

Of course, it still doesn’t have a name other than the industrial “Block 37” or the bland “108 North State.”  How about Daley Mills?  Or maybe “Field’s.”
