Progress on the City Center Project in Downtown Garland is quickly becoming more visibly evident. The existing façade on the north side of City Hall has been removed and crews will soon begin installing the new skin, as well as foundation work for the new CGTV sounds studio on the south side of the building.
The Oaks multi-family portion of the development is taking shape and is scheduled to open in 2015.
Drainage and other infrastructure work along State Street near the rail line and between Fifth and Third Streets will begin soon.
Meanwhile, work on the exterior refurbishment of the historic railcar in Heritage Crossing will wrap up in September.
Downtown patrons will notice a new green space where the old Garland Power & Light administrative offices once stood at the corner of State and Fifth Streets. Once the new grass is established, that space will be open for the public to enjoy.
Recently the Cultural Arts Commission approved a new entryway design for the Austin Street entrance to the Granville Arts Center. Construction is scheduled to begin in the 4th quarter of this year.
