What to Expect On-Site the Next Two Weeks
Burton’s Grill celebrated their Grand Opening on Monday January 22nd. They are enjoying unqualified rave reviews. L.F. Jennings has commenced work on the tenant fit-out construction of Jersey Mike’s and Habit Burger. Both expect to open sometime during the spring of 2018. L.F. Jennings recently completed the fit-out construction work for the FedEx store in Building 1 and has turned that space over to FedEx to complete the fit-out work related to their furniture, fixtures and equipment. Gold’s Gym continues to work on their fit-out construction with target opening dates within the First quarter of 2018. Gold’s Gym has opened a membership sales office on the second floor of Building 2 above District Taco.
The construction of the 119 townhomes is well underway. The first block of townhomes between Rhode Island Avenue and 47th Street are nearly complete. The remaining townhouse blocks between Rhode Island Avenue and 47th Street are expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Currently, 52 townhomes have been sold.
Parking Structure Progress:
CBG Building Company continues construction on the new multi-level parking structure on parcel E – the building 5 pad site. Precast crawler crane has relocated to the Northern edge of garage along Woodberry Street for approximately two (2) weeks to complete the Western portion of the garage. Precast panel deliveries and garage erection of the garage will continue through February 2018. No other trades are able to work in the garage until precast erection is complete.
The closure of the former ERCO plant parking lot between the Rivertech Court cul-de-sac and Lafayette Avenue will continue until the new bridge is open – estimated to be in spring 2018.
The bridge builder, Shirley Contracting, has completed the sidewalks, landscaping, pavement markings, signage, asphalt paving and roadway approaches. Lighting installation, final grading and site cleanup will continue in the upcoming weeks. This work will continue into the first quarter of 2018. The construction will be monitored to assure compliance with County work hours and noise regulations.
CSX Sound Barrier Wall:
An Agreement was recently executed with CSX to allow the construction of a sound barrier wall along Maryland Avenue north of Wells Run Place. Shirley Contracting will begin construction of the wall next week. During construction the portion of Maryland Avenue directly in front of the wall will be closed to allow construction equipment ample room to work. It is anticipated that construction will be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
