Another downtown highrise is gearing up for construction. Bulldozers and other small machinery have been spotted at 399 Fremont Street. The original building permit, issued last June, gave the contractors until mid-December to start up construction, and it appears some dirt may have been pushed around to keep the permit from expiring. General contractor Swinerton has a recent blog post with some updated facts about the 440' tall tower-to-be. Notables include a total of 447 "ultra-luxury rental apartments," 24-hour valet parking for the 251 parking stalls, and a "club house suited for high-class entertaining." The building will consist of an eight-story podium, with a lap pool and rooftop park located above, connected to the 42-story main tower. The entire project is seeking LEED Silver certification, and is scheduled for a April 2016 completion date.
