Crane to arrive at College Park Plaza construction site in early 2013

A crane will be parked at the south end of College Park Plaza in late January or early February 2013 as renovations continue at College Park Plaza.

The entire building is being supplied with temporary heat because the boiler and pipes have been removed. A new boiler is scheduled to be installed in early spring. You will also see a temporary enclosure going up on the southeast corner for roof work.

What’s going on inside the building:

  • HVAC ductwork has been removed from the ramp mechanical room, the penthouse, and the second through sixth floors.
  • flooring demolition is complete on the second, fourth and fifth floors and the Mezzanine.
  • the wood paneling has been removed from the ceiling and walls of the fifth-floor lobby.
  • demolition of the ramp level concrete (for future fire pump room) is complete.

The sidewalk on the south side of Lyon Street, between Division and Winchester, will remained closed until mid-April.
