Time to get this thread back on track with a good old-fashioned photo update. All pictures taken earlier today by me, or someone who looks suspiciously like me. I'll go in order of my walk...
New Genesis Apartments
They finally uncloaked this one. It's pretty underwhelming, though the textured pavers they used on the darker grey areas are a nice touch. They help make the stucco easier to swallow.
I really hope they paint the railings on the Main Street side this yellow. It gives the design a little kick.
Loft Conversion on Winston
(Don't remember the project name)
Coming along nicely. Looks like most of the remaining work is on the ground floor, which I hope they activate with some retail. This shot is looking west from Los Angeles Street.
And the street frontage on Winston.
Speaking of retail, Kitchen Table, the little restaurant that Ray from Ray's Market across the street has been working on forever
seems to be inching closer to opening. Those plastic screens on the rooftop dining area are new.
Chester Williams Building
Residential conversion and building out the ground floor Walgreens continues. The exterior looks great.
And a building who's exterior still has a looong
to go before it's ready to open. My guess is to this point all the work has been on the inside.
Construction of the museum has officially started. There's a lot of rebar above ground level on Upper Grand. Should be exciting to watch this one.
It's hard to tell from the pictures, because it's difficult to get a good vantage point from the street, but this thing is really coming along. Here's the entrance to the park on the North side of Broadway.
Peeking in through a hole in the wall in the "great lawn" area in front of City Hall. If you look very closely on the lower right, you can see the the canopy is built out.
And there are lots of new trees planted, some already blossoming.
And a bonus shot of City Hall from the foundation of the old state building. It's a shame they couldn't integrate this lot into the park. This is like having Boo Radley's house right outside City Hall.
