Let's get a new project on this list...  Has there been anything breaking ground in the last 4 months (besides small restaurants)?

It is a monthly "update," meaning you get to see projects evolve through the construction process.  Nevertheless, don't hesitate to give us a hand by pointing out projects we may be missing.  We'd love to cover them.

Hell I'm happy to be seeing small restaurants coming out of the ground.

Hey, can you make a 50 story skyscraper appear on the downtown construction update for April?

Just something to snazz it up!

Thanks

Heck, I'm just really happy the 5 Points restaurant isn't that tacky Green anymore!  :P

City Hall Annex should be done very soon. Can't wait for that corner to open up again, it makes walking around that block kinda tricky w/traffic.

At least there is some progress in this down economy! 3rd and Main could end up being a catalyst for more projects in Springfield.

3rd and Main is coming along nicely. It is going to be a great addition to the neighborhood. It's a good example of an infill project. There are plans for a pizza restaurant on the ground floor. I am hoping for a Pizza Palace!

I can help you.  It's only about 40 stories - sorry to disappoint - but it helps downtown by freeing up 4 or 5 city blocks - it's called a VERTICAL County Courthouse!

Hey!  Whatever happened to just plain ol' COMMON SENSE!!

Too bad you can't cross main street to get to it.
