Fencing Goes Up Signaling Movement for Micro-Apartments and Roots Pizza Building?

A reader writes:
Empty Lot on Dearborn and Polk. Fencing and two portable toilets were dropped off in the past 2-3 days. Maybe we will get another pizza place!!
The reader is referencing a surprising article we posted about back in the Summer where the owner of the 50/50 restaurant group said one of their Roots Pizza restaurants would presumably be coming the well trafficked SW corner of Dearborn and Polk.

We chalked that up to lofty talk by an aspiring restaurateur, but maybe we were wrong?  Maybe the micro-apartments and pizza joint are actually coming.  Anyone have any scoop?

With this building potentially coming and work on the mega-mansion/retail on the ground floor development across the street - the Printers Row drag is getting some more action.  This is one of our favorite spots in the whole neighborhood and while already developed has potential to get even better.  We will see.
