Developers say they are excited about the transformation.

“Seeing people on the job and then seeing the brick one by one and watching the masons work on the building is unbelievably amazing, to watch these craftsmen do what they do what they do,” said Chief Operating Officer Jackie Koney.

Koney hopes to be able to open part of the building in late 2022 or early 2023.
