A gang of smaller machinery is seen spreading out across the roof of 3300 Main St. in the shot above (capturing a reader’s view of the scene from the HCC midrise next door), as a larger excavator works over some of the rubble piling up at the site lately. Also visible behind the former city code enforcement building, to the south: the now-in-full-swing MATCH theater building, and the rising facades of some of the apartment midrises going up on the Mid Main block.
Permits came through toward the end of August to clear the 1967 mod office spot out of the way to make room for PM Realty’s planned mixed-use apartment highrise, which would be the first highrise in Midtown — though not the last, if the highrise project by Australian developer Caydon gets off the ground as planned at 2850 Fannin up the street.
