A very tall crane is lifting some things up to the roof. Not sure what's going up there exactly, but there is now a pending plan for a major project review by the historic preservation board for this location. Seems like something's going on!
Honestly, this seems like kind of a dirty way to essentially force the city to grant the TIF if they want the rental housing that the committee repeatedly said they want for that site. Very interesting that Redfern is able to build the same number of rental units just two blocks away with no TIF and lower overall rents.Rhoades said the council chose not to vote on the request last month and instead sent it back to a council committee for further review. If the council decides not provide that financing, he said they would convert it to a condominium project.
Construction on the Exterior Roof Top Deck has not even started yet. GC's bidding on the project is due this Thursday. So I wouldn't expect to see it completed for many months as it appears it's a complete re-do of the entire Top of the East.So, we've gone from 1 top-floor bar (the Top of the East) for the past 50 years to how many rooftop bars in development? Is the Top of the East outdoor section open yet?
