While the Franklinton Floodwall was officially completed back in 2004, making the area safer from flooding concerns and re-open to new development, it’s taken another 13 years for the floodwave of development to actually begin. Nearly a dozen larger-scale new-build projects have been proposed, or are in the planning stages for the area, and construction officially got under way in 2017 in a big way.

Now that those dominos have begun to fall, locals can expect to watch the neighborhood change rapidly in the next several years.

Check out more projects, information and construction photos below.
