Thanks to the tipster who sent in this photograph of the steel frame of H&M at the Fulton Street Mall. This site had been a hole in the ground since January of 2011. In his words: “They started building the steel structure about a week ago and have been working at night with a big crane. However, demolition is not complete on the site, there are still a few lower floors of two older buildings in the corner of the site that seem to be tricky to remove.” We wonder if construction workers will build around those lower floors, considering the demolition permit approved way back when was only for a partial demo. Now, Al Laboz isn’t exactly known for speediness when it comes to his many development projects, but perhaps we’ll see a store open here before the year is out.
