There are significant costs associated with winter construction, especially starting earthwork and foundations in the winter. If an owner wants to start in the winter, the general contractor wouldn't say no. It's probably a financial decision.
Thinking there's not a whole lot to say anymore now that people listen & she has to make sense.

Not to mention supplemental heat (usually propane) required for certain stages of construction, especially during the extreme cold months.

The project has gone through 2 different GC's providing estimates to the owner with the owner bocking each time saying the cost is to high. Then finding a new GC to rebid the same project. What the owner doesn't realize is the site for what they want to build is a tight site and due to the building requirements it drives up the cost. The owner could have chosen a better site and the finances would have been more favorable.

I like big mounds and I can not lie, you other brothers can't deny. That when you drive up to a lot that's itty bitty and a round thing in your face, you get sprung.


I'll show myself out...

I didn't get a good look, but there's a crane or some big thing on site now.

DC Assessor could just be waiting for an update, but the duplexes that were torn down have different ownership than the hotel. They are owned by Greenslate, the Blackstone developers. Maybe they have intentions of building something like a 50 unit apartment building here.
