Work underway on East Village “tower of Pizza Hut”

Caisson drilling has begun on the southwest corner of Ashland and Division in East Village.

An 11-story tower housing 2 floors of commercial space and 99 apartments is being built on the site, which was formerly home to a Pizza Hut.

You can find more details on the site’s history, and the controversy surrounding its development, at the East Village Association website.
