ALE Solutions celebrated the groundbreaking for their new corporate headquarters in the upper floors of First Street Building #1, to be constructed at the northeast corner of First and Illinois Streets.
The start of site grading work on Sept. 14 marks the beginning of construction on First Street Phase 3. Building #1 is expected to be completed in late summer 2016. Construction of the public parking garage immediately to the east of Building #1 is planned to begin in October.
Construction fencing has been placed around the site. Although the temporary gravel parking lot east First Street has been closed, a smaller parking area has been opened north of the fenced in area, across from the plaza.
Angled parking spaces along the east side of First Street will be closed periodically during the construction.
For alternate public parking locations, please view the City’s Downtown Parking Map.
