I had not seen the area in a few years but ventured recently and was surprised by how it looked. In addition to the poorly thought out new construction, there were holes in the streetscape for beer gardens or parking where vintage buildings once stood. Maybe some of that is temporary? I don't know, but it simply wasn't what it should be

I drove by there a week or so ago and the site is cleared and ready for construction.

They were doing a little work on the site 2 weeks ago. Thought I saw a drilling rig. Same with the new CVS east of Clark. Haven't seen activity on either since last week.

Wrigleyville Taco Bell Replacement Climbs Above Ground

The former Taco Bell is no more. In its place, a small retail space that was reported to include a climbing gym, is under construction.

Is this new building going to look like what was previously proposed (https://chicago.curbed.com/2018/2/12...planet-granite) or is it going to be a smaller strip mall looking building with parking in front?

Same as initially proposed, I believe. They're just erecting the steel starting from the back first, so they can do it all with a smaller crane.
