    Thanks for the updates everyone. I would have thought that projects in the Central Business District would have garnered pressure to complete those first as they disrupt pedestrian and vehicle traffic and are generally unsightly in a high priority area. Nonetheless, I can understand the budgeting of resources

    And I do think that two eight story buildings are cause for the demolition of the previous buildings to the extent they actually get built. I guess I am still a bit scarred from all the projects that went bust in 2008-2009.

    Like which ones? There weren’t that many.

    I can’t think of any that went bust following the demolition of a building either, unless you count Ibiza, but that’s been replaced with The Hub. And the former building there wasn’t much of a looker. ;)

    I heard from someone at the City that the project has been delayed because LC doesn’t have the staff to manage too many projects at one time. This is similar to the Wood Companies – they can only manage 1 or 2 projects at a time. There’s always the option of hiring a construction management company, but there’s a cost involved.

    I know that there were plans to renovate The Goat @ Preserve Crossing and they are in the middle of construction on 2-3 out of state projects as well.

    Here’s a view of the back of the existing buildings at the SW corner of Rich and High to give an idea of how non-optimal it is for renovating into any decent number of apartment units. There appears to be at least a century of building additions affixed to the backs of the buildings in the front. I’m sure it could all be cleaned up nice enough, but it wouldn’t get the density of the new eight-story LC Riversouth building proposed to replace it all.

    Are you doing a part two to this months construction roundup? Would like to see all the others like the Fireproof, senior housing in Vic Village etc. Either way just wondering! Thanks for the great photos!

    No part 2 this month. Swamped with a lot of other projects right now. ;)

    Yeah, it looks like they pushed the sidewalk fencing to the street too.

    Going up?

    They were on site working this morning hammering out the remaining concrete wall along Rich. Hopefully construction will continue!

    Construction will begin soon, and demolition of the building on the south side of Rich will start coming down soon also.

    I don’t know, too many projects ended up getting cancelled or watered down. The convention center project, pretty much anything in Clintonville, the bike lanes Downtown… There have been good things this year, but way too much mediocrity and NIMBYism for my taste.

    There’s a crane now on site if you haven’t already noticed it! ;)
