The whole block from Pearl to Silver is still in the proposal phase I believe.  I'm not even sure an architect has been selected or if the Drew is included in the proposal for the larger project which includes multi-family and restoration of the adjacent building.

The Drew is separate from the larger project.

GNP Development is interviewing architectural firms now for their project, going through the PUD process. They hope to begin construction before the end of the year, though that may be ambitious.

Bump.

Also curious if anything is happening (can’t check myself since I am too far away).

Bourre sold it to a couple of developers out of South Florida a month or so ago. Since that time, they've removed a lot of the debris/junk from the the inside. They say they plan a full renovation, have done other renovations in the area.

Thanks ! Another question: Is part of the property used for the nearby development ? Forgot which one it was but I remember seeing plans on Metrojax showing how a new develoment was bordering on the Drew mansion and it looked like it used part of its property.

In any case, let’s hope there are less big announcements and more action to save this building.
