While a few finishing touches remain outstanding, Council will resume meetings at City Hall as of Monday, Nov. 14, 2016.
Most of the construction fencing around City Hall will disappear by mid-November, making the west entrances to City Hall fully accessible from Fifth and State Streets.
The new CGTV Soundstage construction is underway and expected to be functional by late November.
The hardscape improvements at Arts Plaza are complete and landscape work has resumed. We anticipate re-opening the Arts Plaza by Thanksgiving, providing patron access to the Granville Performing Arts Center and Atrium from Austin Street.
Streetscapes and landscaping adjacent to City Hall and Tract B (at the northwest corner of State and Fifth Streets) will follow the landscaping installation at the Arts Plaza. The landscaping and site furnishings should be installed by Thanksgiving.
Construction is underway on the new building located at 203 N. Fifth St., across from City Hall. It will house the City’s Economic Development Department on the first level and feature five townhome style apartments on the upper two floors. Oaks Properties is tentatively scheduling the opening of the residential units located on the upper floors of Tract B by Dec. 1, 2016.
January – March 2017
Design for the Economic Development Suite located on the first level of 203 N. Fifth Street is underway. Construction is to be scheduled and could be complete as early as 1Q2017.
Projects on Hold
The construction phase of the Heritage Crossing project is on hold for budget reasons. Stay tuned for updates.
The construction phase of the Economic Development Offices is also on hold. In the coming months, Council will be presented with information regarding the interior design and finishes for the space. Stay tuned for updates.
