Welcome to Curbed Checks In, where we check up on some of our favorite development projects, and follow-up on real estate sold that appeared ripe for the teardown or remodel.

2001 Market Street has been in the works for what feels like forever. As of late and after a long delay, the cranes have been working overtime now. We first saw the project back in 2010, as a Ford dealership with 80 condos and a Whole Foods at the corner of Market and Dolores Streets. The final version hammered out to a 30,000 sq.ft. store on the ground floor and 82 condos above. Things were stalled for some time when the developer had to work out a solution for the inevitable traffic shenanigans that the grocery store will cause. By February 2012 the developer found a compromise--expand the sidewalks at the intersection of Market and Dolores streets, forcing drivers to slow down for the wider turn and increase pedestrian safety. Now it looks like the northern section of the building has its concrete up and ready, with structural steel going in place this past month. Construction is slated to continue through the year, with the store opening first and the condos sales office following soon after in the fall.
