Excavation is nearing completion. A lot of mud with rock at the bottom which is about as good as you can get for around here. In fact, if you look at the crevasse they've uncovered it looks like it could very well be the remains of the legendary Johnson Street ravine. You should check it out.

...the dra asked if balconies could have opaque glass at least partly so stuff on them would not be subject to theft (since it could be seen presumably by 844 residents)...

They should have asked for something that would partly or fully obscure 844 Johnson and its effects from the rest of us.

What’s the estimated completion for this project?

Any other updates? Also how many floors & units will there be?

I suspect blasting will start here soon if it already hasn't.

Thread thumbnail pic has changed for this? Do we have more images?

 

edit: from the October, 2018 revisions doc. So these are the best images we've seen so far, yes? I'd say the design seems to come together much better when you can actually discern the texture of the lighter brick veneer. There's actually a lot of glass coverage on this building, too.

Are there plans to remove to overhead power lines on Johnson & Quadra, or was that just taken out of the renderings to make them look nicer?

IIRC OH power lines are still on that block of Yates, but I hope so.

Hopefully! I know that in Richmond pretty much every new development is required to either underground their lines or pre-duct for undergrounding in the future.
