That is disappointing, but at least they are sticking with the timeline. Art Central will be vacated by the end of July, so I guess it will take those 2 months to empty out the building (glass, ceilings, etc) before structural demolition begins in Oct.

Site prep has started.

They're digging up the sidewalk and have begun interior demolition of Art Central and the daycare building next door. Structural demolition will proceed in late September.

My guess is that the asbestos will take a while to remove. I'm just thrilled that this one is going ahead.

Surreal: I heard the developer might want to get the height past the Bow! I highly doubt it, but you never know.
