Had his chance, remember this?

Yes indeed. In fact, I think that Ivanka was in charge of carrying this off. Fortunately she failed.

The Opus saga is hardly unique to skyscraper construction in Atlanta as well as most such efforts in cities globally. Many projects die on the vine; they are speculative, often put forward to judge the market and failing excitement, funding or other causes, just fade away. Fortunately , in the Trump tower case, we got a fairly nice replacement in the same space. Unfortunately, we have a big dirt pile on 14th Street. I think a small park would be nice.

Hi, I recently read this thread, and, after reading, was thinking the Opus site would have been a weed covered hole, barren, and lifeless. Alas, I walked by on the Friday after Thanksgiving- a day other sites sit idle. The Opus site was alive! I saw 4 people doing some work- toting equipment on the site. It appears they were working on the rear retaining wall.

Are you sure? They might just be taking a piss or engaging in some hanky-panky in broad daylight.

The OPUS building permit was updated today.

Structural review was marked returned by applicant.

Assuming it also includes the changes for plumbing then the permit could have all the approvals soon.

The inspector was probably there to check out the potential for foundation damage to the adjacent building.

Permit has received approval for structural review. Just needs plumbing approval and she's ready to go.

Why do people keep resurrecting this page? Not only is the project in major scope creep phase, but what stakeholders in their right mind would back this project. This project is in the extinction stage and should sell the land and give any deposits made back to those who pre-leased.
