Last Sunday, it was still too hot out, but I went over to the Current on River site anyway because a lot has changed since I was last there.

1. Starting at River and Berry, I took this almost-all-encompassing shot.

2, 3. Almost to and at River & Camden

4. While I was on Camden, I took this oh-by-the-way shot of the project on Moore St.

These are the stitches I took.........

5. On Berry

6. On River (too close, too wide and glitchy)

7. On River near Camden

8. On Camden between Main and Moore

Will tenants be able to see the river or just River Street and and the Toyota dealer? Maybe from the top floors.

Probably not the north-south part of the river on the east side of Foschini Park until the sea level rises, but maybe a bit in the winter, sans foliage.

The only visual I can offer you is the first picture below which I took from the second-floor roof of the Johnson Library during the demolition of C-on-R's predecessor, the Oritani Field Club. You can see some of the east-west segment of the Kipp's Bend section of the river, which might look a little better (minus the 90-bazillion cars) from the top floors - especially from residences closer to Berry St.

On a sort of reverse-related note, I will start to slowly lose MY view of the entire Kipp's Bend probably beginning next week, as the 389 Main Project has started to emerge from its basement (second photo).

I'll be posting about it in the "Tracking the 395 Main St rehab project" thread, starting with its next post.

And - yeah - I know I have to change that original street number in the title when I get the time and inclination (I like 395 better - it was the address of the previous Main/Ward corner building - than 389, which reminds me of big old Pontiac engines from the 60s).

This post contains 15 images - 12 of whch are from the Current on River project. The other 3 are oh-by-the-way-the-Moore-Street-project-is-practically-next-door images, so let's do those first:

1-3. Not to sound dismissive or anything, but since I parked on Moore south of Salem, I had to walk north on Moore to get to Current on River and these 3 shots were readily available, so.....................

4. The reason I went to Current was because of this shot I took from home earlier that morning. Oh, no - were more floors being added? I needed to speak with someone there.

5. After my long hike of a whole block, crooked Current was in my sights (I could straighten it out a bit, but then I'd lose the top of the crane - it's bad either way).

6. A different, closer angle of what I had seen earlier from my living room

7-13. My usual clockwise shoot around the site. By the way, in #10, southbound traffic on River St is being stopped temporarily while a large vehicle utilizes the street to get from one part of the building to another. The is one of the reasons why there have been delays for the last few weeks for southbound traffic there.

14. Construction fever has spread across E. Berry St to the east entrance of the Giant Farmers Market, as seen in this 2-photo stitch. In the sequence of events, this should actually follow #8.

15. The last thing I usually do here is a 3-photo stitch of the SW corner of the site, standing on E. Camden St near the side of the library. The two gentlemen in the hard hats confirmed that what you see here is, indeed, the top floor of the building, so there should be no more loss of view from my apartment - at least from this project.

Four shots from 3 projects:

1. The very first shot of the 435 Main (former Holman Moving) project, taken across Anderson St from the Second Reformed Church's parking lot. The crane's been sitting there for a couple of weeks and the sheeting (asbestos remediation?) was only there the morning I shot this and gone by afternoon.

2. Current on River from home

3. The Tyvek-ed Current on River

4. 240 Main
