Parking Lot Progress Report: 1313 California Street
Here are a few updates that might be of interest to downtown neighbors:
- This week, the team from Eddie Axner Construction adjusted the fence-line at the corner of California & Shasta Streets, ensuring better pedestrian access during construction. Thank you, Axner!
- As is common in projects like this, some hazardous materials had been identified in the soil, and they needed to be removed. Special thanks to Vestra GIS & Environmental Engineering for their help with this.
- We also appreciate the work of Gheen Builders, who will oversee the next steps. Weather pending (we know California needs the rain but we also need a paving window!), we are getting ready for Step 2 of the process, which is set to happen in March 2019:
When the parking lot on the corner of California & Shasta Streets is complete, it will be accessible to the public. There is no parking requirement for development in the downtown core, but The McConnell Foundation is committed to contributing to the solution, so we are paving the parking lot and making it available to the public for a transitional period of up to 10 years. Here is the plan for what it will look like:
