Mariano’s Grocery Construction Update

Alderman Pat Dowell (3rd Ward) passed along the following update to us today to share with you.  She plans to attend our community meeting on September 15th so mark your calendar to learn more details about Mariano’s as well as other 3rd ward updates.  Original plans were to break ground near the end of July.

“Construction is anticipated to now start in early September. The start date was move forward because the process for approval of a street vacation on the site took longer than anticipated. Yesterday, the general contractor held their second pre bid meeting for subcontractors of certain of the construction trades. The excavation, concrete, and security subcontractors have already been selected. My office is organizing a soft groundbreaking ceremony and we anticipate construction will take place over 8 months.”
