Does it look like they are not building up?

Yep, per the rendering this appears to be a "5-over-2" (5 stories of wood over 2 stories of concrete podium), currently the most cost-effective way to construct a 7-story multi-family residential building, especially if you want to incorporate ground floor retail.

Went by this site last night, and it still looks about the same as the photos from late April. Anyone have info on this?

I've seen very little action from the site since the concrete got done. No preparations, no milling about, no coffee/donuts. I see more from the loiterers by the 7-Eleven. Hopefully this isn't another fake-out like 2000 Ross.
