Construction Update 08-16-19

Park District

On the corner building, cold-form steel has begun to be installed. The south stair core is poured to the 8th level and the north core is complete to the 6th floor. Concrete pours for level 5 are expected to begin in late August.

The Board of Water and Light will be removing (3) power poles on Evergreen Ave. Once that work is completed the underground utility work will begin along with the closure of Albert Ave. The tentative start date for the underground utility work and closure of Albert Ave. is early September.

On the hotel site, the project continues to go vertical, as underground work is well underway as well in preparation for slab-on-grade concrete pours expected to take place in the near future.
