Broadstone Uptown East is now under construction! When we announced the project back in December, there wasn’t a definite construction time-line however, things are moving quickly over at the project site.
In six months, the existing building was demolished, excavation is nearly complete, and a new luffing jib tower crane has been erected. Below are a couple of closeups of the project site showing the hole in the ground.
Next up are a couple of photos taken from across the street. Previous to this project, a single-story office building and surface parking lot resided here. This new eight-story building will be a much better use of land.
We can’t wrap up the post without showing photos of the new luffing jib crane. Why the luffer when there’s an ample amount of space and no tall buildings around? The project next door is also under construction and will also probably utilize a crane. We will be visiting that project next.
When complete, Broadstone Uptown East will provide 120 homes to the City Park West neighborhood. With excavation for the two underground levels nearly complete, we should start to see some vertical action in the coming months.
