Yup. According to this right of way closure permit, the six months of excavation starts on 11/23 and goes through May 2020.

How deep are they going? The podium will be massive as it is, didn't realize they were going to dig down so the podium will be even bigger than I thought.

IIRC, it's 40'.

This truly surreal to me even though I knew this was going to eventually happen through a friend in the know even if he was off by a few floors. I guess I will hold my applause until it goes from prep to u/c. Maybe then it will totally sink in the significance of this project. This time we won't be disappointed. I'm hoping we will see a skyline impact by this time next year, or am I being a little optimistic?

It should be above ground by then, but it probably won't have a big impact yet. They have six month of excavation, and it always takes a while to get above ground from deep pits like this one will have.
