You folks don't mind my continuing to update pics of the progress, do you? There's enough noise on the forum without my adding to it but it is one of the few ways I can contribute to the community.

Add it up! Love seeing progress in addition to strings of theories.

R1S on order
I have a long layover in Chicago mid-October, so I am crossing my fingers they mean early in Q4 🤞

Updated pics from last night. Progress continues! Seeing foam sprayed on the interior girders and roof deck and more prep work for the brick exterior.

If the fence wasn't up now would be a good time to go in and write, we've been trying to reach you about your Rivians extended warranty on the wall 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

I'm starting to doubt we'll see a Rivian in Chicago before the first preorder arrives.

Scooter, thank you for keeping Rivian fans up to date on the progress of the Chicago sales office. I'm interested because it's about a 20 minute walk from the Amtrak station.
I live near the Amtrak station in Lansing and can get to Chicago by train in about four hours.
If construction continues, it seems that the Rivian sales office should be completed in a few months. It's around 240 miles from there to my home. If I could pick the R1T up there, as long as the battery is charged, I would be able to return home in about four hours.

I just looked and both the Rivian plant and Chicago location are 4.5-5.5 hours away depending on traffic. I’m sure the wife would be up for a weekend trip, especially to Chicago. Haha

Latest progress shots from last night. Appears to be more brickwork in the front and some window frames are installed.

I know that even southern Wisconsin is not near Chicago but I appreciate the times that you have been able to provide pictures of the Rivian sales office construction progress. It would take me a full day to get there and back.

My office is about a mile from the Randolph location. I've stopped driving by because progress has been really slow, however a local favorite, the Tamale Guy, has set up temporary operations in a bar a block away so I might make an exception...

Appreciate that. I'm in the city for work just about every other week so its not an inconvenience to continue to update. I used to live at Randolph and Des Plaines so the Rivian location is in my old 'hood.
