The developer finally updated their progress on their facebook page:
I am liking this one more and more, it is interesting to see a different approach to a four-story apartment building and the roof treatment is much better than the overhanging slabs so often used, I am hoping this signals the end to that trend.
Not a lot of external work, but the developer took these shots back on the 8th:
The facade work here is looking good. I noticed they are installing stone [like?] siding on the lower level. I like the more residential look of this building which improves the street in this more residential neighborhood.
Yes, it appears to be actual stone (or slate), and it's being hand-applied, even. This surprised me as I thought they'd end up using some cheap stone veneer. Still not crazy about the hardie-board siding, but the stone was a nice surprised as was the steel they used for the ground floor.
