Mike, you are correct. They did excavate certain portions of the roads currently being resurfaced. I agree that re-paving there makes more sense. However, there was no excavation on Lowell St between 55th and 56th. Yet, that entire section is being repaved, well, half of it anyway. The workers I talked to said that it was a requirement of the city due to it being "new construction".
I like the trees too. Hope they wrap it up soon.
They will be rentals. They had a meeting with the neighborhood at Destiny Arts before they started construction. 2 years ago?
I heard they had trouble with one of the contractors who were supposed to resurface the road. Now it's a different company and they are, according to one of the workers, supposed to be done on Monday 10/30. Though, I'll believe it when I see it. This whole thing has taken WAY too long to finish.
My fault. Wrong ticket. Apologies.
