Crews at 4th & Race are in the process of dismantling the buck hoist located on 4th near the corner of 4th and Race streets. This will allow them to pour new sidewalk in the area in early March, and then resume finish work on the façade where the buck hoist was located. Interior work continues to be the focus in the residential units.
Academy Lofts is wrapping up with finishing touches occurring in each unit. 3CDC has selected a team to list the 10 condominium units in March. They will be staged and photographed in the coming days.
Court Street closed down to through traffic at the beginning of February and will remain closed until the end of March. At that time, eastbound traffic will reopen and half of the parking spaces on the street will be available for use. Closing the street to traffic will allow crews to finish the project closer to the original timeline, making up for time that was lost due to delays caused by utility work that was happening on the street. Foundation work was ongoing throughout February for the streetcar and utility poles along Walnut Street, and thermal blankets were deployed across the site to prevent deep freezing during the winter storms. Roadway construction will begin in March with demolition of the eastbound lane.
