August 2020 Updates


Permanent power has been turned on and curbs have been poured throughout as the construction crew finishes the parking garage for 4th & Race. Interior framing and mechanical, electrical and plumbing work will continue on residential levels 8-10. The pool area has been waterproofed and the second of three concrete pours has been poured for Level 15, which will be the roof of the building.

Each building included in the Perseverance project is progressing. Columns and masonry walls at 1505 Vine Street are in progress, while the new storefront is being installed at 1511 Vine Street. Insulation is going in at 1513-1515 Vine and electrical work is being completed at 1517 Vine, with drywall rounding out work at both of the latter sites.


Willkommen closed on financing at the end of July, and construction immediately followed at almost all 20 sites. The existing buildings included in the project are receiving structural and masonry repairs, and the first locations to start new construction will be on Vine Street, with the sites on Republic to follow. Construction on the site at Woodward Avenue will begin once the season ends at Ziegler Pool.
