From demolition to near finish, it took around 112 days to construct the new Athens Steak 'n Shake, located at 2033 West Broad Street, according to Ed Lane, project engineer for the Watkinsville-based Smith Planning Group.
Lane captured the construction in a two-minute, time-lapse video. Watch it here www.smithplanninggroup.com/movies/ in optional high definition. The video caption notes a photo was taken every 30 minutes.

Local fans of the Steak 'n Shake franchise won't have to wait much longer to order up a burger. The restaurant opens this week, so there will be plenty of time to enjoy a holiday milkshake this season. An official ribbon cutting is planned for Thursday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m.
Editor's note: The restaurant opened on Nov. 13, two days earlier than the opening date that was originally reported.
