Powderhouse Redevelopment Project Update –

MarKa shared the following… “Behind the scenes there is a lot of work well underway and rest assured the project is moving ahead.

Two things that slowed construction mobilization recently include:

1) the bank’s third party final review took longer to complete than was originally scheduled; and

2) the contract process with the GC has taken longer than originally scheduled.

They are actively wrapping up both of those processes now, and all efforts are aimed at a July mobilization.”
