Groundbreaking was today.  I’m excited to watch this go up and how it will eventually anchor the north stretch of Main along with Cain’s.

Has anyone ever seen better plans or renderings. These don't actually look real.

Anyone heard anything on this? Looks like there hasn't been any work since the groundbreaking back in October.

It appears the permits are still under review by the City.

Drove by the site a few days ago. Doesn't look like they've quite started anything, but there is a new construction trailer on the lot.

It's a start!

The trailer has been there for a bit. I remember seeing it at least a couple weeks ago, but it's hard to tell what's going on since I usually drive by in the dark this time of year.

Davenport is almost topped out. Haven't been down the street much lately, but I'm sure they won't be impacting the street with construction for too much longer.

Permit still not issued by city.

If you monitor that link I posted above, you’ll be able to see when they’ll actually be allowed to start moving dirt.

Drove by again last night and there's now construction fencing on that side of the street. The parking lot is officially blocked off finally. Looks like they are starting on some of the infrastructure running down the sidewalk.

Davenport construction is still taking up a bunch of street area as well - I thought they had pulled it back, but apparently not. At least they have started the exterior on that one so by the time OKPOP really gets underway they can at least get out of the street again.

Drove by this yesterday, and they've finally started some work! Looks like the parking lot was demolished. Glad to see some progress on this one.

A nice video of the renderings... they've been working in earnest for about a month.

Thanks, for the tour.  Really cool project; hope construction can stay on or ahead of schedule; project like this make memorable impressions on tourists and guests.

They've got formwork going up to start pouring the second level soon. Everything on the first level seems to have been set already. Moving at a decent pace.
