October 2017 Project Updates


Masonry restoration work is underway in the historic buildings throughout the construction at 15th & Vine. Additionally, restoration of the historic alley is scheduled to begin in November. Air barriers are being installed on the building’s sheathing, with window installation to follow, beginning on the Vine Street façade. Lastly, construction of Jeremy and Bridget Lieb’s new restaurant at the corner of 15th & Vine began earlier this month, with an anticipated opening in spring 2018, shortly after the building’s expected completion. Leasing information for the office and retail space is available on the 3CDC website.


At Rennen & Beecher Flats, general contractor Titan Real Estate Group has started work with its subcontractors onsite and will continue work for the next 12 months until the project has reached completion. Demolition work has wrapped up, and site excavation work will begin soon.
