Progress at FBRK - Communal Working/Social Space at 2222 S. Michigan

We were recently down in the Motor Row entertainment district and snapped a pic of the beautiful, but old Hudson Motor Building at 2222 S. Michigan:

As you'll see in the windows, space is available for lease.  All the way on the right, you will also see the branding for FBRK.  If you're wondering what that is, here a blurb from our post back in May 2018:
The vision for the 92-year-old facility, which would be known as FBRK (prounounced "fabric"), has shades of co-working like WeWork and membership clubs like Soho House. The anchor of the five-story project would be 40,000 square feet of office space for members, including private offices, open workspace and conference rooms.
Another 100,000 square feet would feature a gym, barbershop, restaurants and a pool designed to allow members to "live together and work together and socialize and get their work done in one space," Idonije said. "The notion is ultimately that well-rounded people build well-rounded, balanced companies."
If this materializes how it's envisioned, it could be a huge win for the area.  Here is a rendering of what they're hoping for:
