Yet another major downtown development milestone today with the groundbreaking for 14 Lecount. This two-phase project will be among the most significant in our city’s history, containing housing, ground-floor businesses, and parking, as well as a re-designed Anderson Street that will serve as a vibrant new public space. Fully a quarter of the apartments will be affordable at a spectrum of price points. Here’s more information about the project, along with a rendering of its design.
The ground-breaking ceremony was held at the construction site between Main, North, Lecount, and Anderson. Most of the block has been cleared and excavated, bringing us down below street level and providing a view perspective on the surrounding downtown that I have never before experienced and that I tried (with only limited success) to capture in the photo attached to this post.
