Now that Market Station is out of the ground, brisk vertical progress is being made all around the project site. Even though we visited the site only a few weeks ago, there are already some new structural elements coming into play.
Let’s start off by looking at the project from the 16th Street Mall side. This side will feature two 10-story buildings, roughly the same height as its neighbors 16M, SugarCube, and 16 Market Square. With work beginning on the third floor, these buildings already have quite the presence along the 16th Street Mall.
The multiple five-story buildings that will wrap around Market and 17th Street are also making great vertical progress. These buildings will feature the residential component of the project with a four-story wood frame structure over a single story concrete podium.
Wrapping up, here is one last photo of Market Station from the corner of 17th and Blake Street. This corner of the project is the furthest behind but is now starting to go vertical above the street-level. This great view of 1144 Fifteenth will soon be covered up by a handsome brick building.
It is incredibly exciting to see all the vertical action take place on this (mostly) full city block!
