Progress Report: Parking Lot Paving at 1313 California Street
Here are a few updates that might be of interest to downtown neighbors:
The week of February 18th, 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 were identified in the soil, and they needed to be removed. Special thanks to Vestra GIS & Environmental Engineering for their help with this. This was Step 1 and it was important to get it right.
We also appreciate the work of Gheen Builders, who are overseeing the next steps. After a rainy spring, we finally have a window and now Step 2 of the process is underway: paving!
When the parking lot on the corner of California & Shasta Streets is complete, it will be accessible to the public (Step 3). 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.
Photos that show the current progress are below:
When Step 3 is complete, here is the plan for what it will look like:
