Construction Update
73 East Lake Buttoned Up

73 East Lake Street under construction

It’s been a while since we last checked in on progress at 73 East Lake Street, and it looks like they’ve got the skin of the building pretty much buttoned up.  The concrete pedestrian barrier and scaffolding have been removed from the front of the tower and the incredibly thin building is starting to look like it’s always been there. Even though we miss the super nice Enterprise employees who used to run the skanky car rental garage at this location, the new skyscraper is a much more welcome and fitting member of the neighborhood, architecturally speaking.
