As the construction season winds to a close, the initial phase of the First Street riverfront property development has been completed. The exterior of Building #1 is now finished, streetscaping has been installed along First and Illinois Streets, and the public parking deck is now open for use. Build outs for businesses withing the building will continue through the winter.
In September, the City approved plans for Building #3, to be located just east of the parking deck along the public riverwalk. Excavation and foundation work for Building #3 has begun, with goal of having the foundation in place before the winter, with major construction work to continue in 2017.
