Another big project has now gotten underway--new fences have gone up, the green windscreens have come down, construction office trailers have been delivered, a "Construction Zone" sign has been posted, and there was even a bit of site clearing being done, so I think it's safe to decree that work has begun on JPI's 70/100 I project
. These two buildings, when finished in mid-2008, will total nearly 700 residential units. (And I'm dispensing with the technicalities
where 70 I construction is supposedly starting in September, and 100 I in October. They're gonna share a wall, they're by the same company, as far as I'm concerned, they're being constructed together!) A big batch of demolition took place in April 2006, but there's still a fair amount of leftover foundations and other stuff that will need to be dug up. UPDATE:
Here's the GlobeSt.com piece
on the 70/100 project; it says that they plan to break ground next year on their New Jersey Ave.
