Thanks to that heads-up from Twitter user @vidlerd, we know there’s been some soil sampling happening in the almost-always-empty parking lot at 180 West Randolph Street in The Loop. (You still get in big trouble if you park there though.)
Sometimes, soil sampling means construction is imminent. And sometimes it doesn’t. This parking lot is up for sale, and so far there’s nothing to indicate a transaction. Is the soil being tested for the sake of a prospective buyer? By the lot owner, just so they know all there is to know about the lot they’re selling? The answers to these and many other questions are out there. The question is, are the questions?
