We are selling those lots to New Atlantic Builders, who is building and selling the houses. They buy about 1.5 lots/month. Haven’t heard about where they are at in construction/sales.

I saw two partially complete units.  Still a long way to go..... Did not see any onsite labor, but it was just a drive by.

Went back today. 2 units half finished. Great floorplan in the open unit (it was not secure). The other unit was locked up.

Having driven by many times I am seeing ZERO activity here and also no marketing to speak of outside of the large sign on site. Hard to sell real estate if your relying on a sign alone to market it.

There has been no activity there for months.

They've started installing the roundabout at the district.   It's about 300ft west of where it's been shown in all of the renderings though.  Basically in line with the current alignments of Prudential and Broadcast Place.  Not sure how that part of the street grid is going to look now.

We're definitely overdue for an Urban Construction Update. Several decent sized projects are making headway or getting started. Look for the next one in early August.

Have you seen anything related to the Fuller Warren pedestrian/bike path overpass? As far as I can tell, it looks done, but it looks to have become an afterthought until they completely finish the ground level skatepark & other additions.

I heard the railing contractor walked off.  Supposedly it's going be be finished in November.  Haven't seen any work on the pedestrian part in like a year.

I heard the supplier for the railing went out of business, so they are trying to source from a different vendor, but that is causing a delay.  Both RAP and SMPS are very eager to get this done.  RAP is actively in talks with FDOT to push this along.

I was wrong about this.  It's not the roundabout but the curbing along the extension of Prudential through the dcsb lot that they are building.  The other day there was just a big semicircular curb and I assumed it was the start of the roundabout.

This makes sense as there is a portion of the railing that's literally just 2x4's where the Vystar parking lot is. Thanks for the info, as well as acme54321.

Same story I heard but you'd think they've had plenty of time to get it resolved.

Well someone must have caught wind of this talk about the pedestrian bridge.  They have finished the lighting over the last few days.
