Oh damn. I was wondering how they were going to use the old building. Answer: They weren't.

Also, I hope most of the good eats around there survived Covid. That is a super foody neighborhood. Rivian employees there will have some excellent lunches.

I ate there they are thriving streets are closed and have small green houses set up for people to eat in and the insides are open as well the restaurants are being able to hold more people and are super busy.

Wife just sold her condo in that 'hood and that entire street is an amazing food destination. Really enjoyed living there.

Good to see Rivian making progress on the joint but had hoped they would be further along than it appears they are (assuming the photos in the post are current).

Found myself in Chicago yesterday and walked by the Rivian site for updated pics. Some progress but no trucks!

Doesn't look like it changed much I wonder if they are waiting on chips?

Agreed. When comparing the first and latest pics we can see a couple of changes. They finished the floors and roof in the add-on section and over the new stairwell on the alley. Its progress, guessing it will be finished "soon".

Construction is never quick and easy. (as anyone that has done home renovations using a contractor(s) can attest to....).

Also why an EV company starting and then ramping up takes so long. I believe Rivian will make it...just going to take longer than they promised. But someone like Lucid, etc, I question their ability to stay in business long term.
