A few of the smaller projects seem to be paused. Was really looking forward to the 1037 Hendricks project. Any info on that one?

I love these updates.  Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into them.

It would be really cool if you had a section with recently completed projects (since the last update).  So we could see the final product.  Currently they just fall off the map and go away.  Like the old federal reserve building.  Last update it said it was almost complete with some photos.  This update its just gone.  I assume its complete, and I know I could drive by it, but it would be cool if there was a final post in the update saying its done and here are the finished photos.

Would also really help me when I am trying to update my map.

Three others of note in the Springfield section:

Camp Craft Cocktails has also been renovating a warehouse at 2062/2070  N. Liberty Street, on-going.

The former owners of Leaf & Bean continue to renovate the historic building at 1349 N. Market Street, but now just as leasable space:

Former owner of Zodiac Grill continues to renovate the historic building at 1555 N. Pearl into a cafe space, Othello:

I believe the space on Lomax being developed by Ted Stein is called The Lomax instead of The Local.  I'll text you about something going on in San Marco that might make a good story.

Re: Flying Iguana (San Marco Theatre).  Dying to know what will happen to the old movie camera that was in the lobby outside the ladies' room.  Hopefully someone rescued it.  Might be a nice fixture at the Florida Theatre if they can find a place for it.

A lot of these projects have stalled out real slow work can’t blame the city for all these problems especially the fountain work now seeing all these photos like college street homes. there still building them. they are houses for peat sakeseasier to build than a big concrete building. That was approved back in 2019 and there still working on it. The symphony park on the northbank is also under construction and the bulkheads, also the hendricks reddi arts complex is also still under construction. Some of these projects shouldn’t take this long to build but here we are. So can’t blame the city or developers on this like the fountain when everyone is suffering. Don’t think it is city or developer problem but maybe a worker and material problem. Ive seen clay county on housing boom so probably alot of workers have been taken to work on those projects and short on manpower over here spread to thin.maybe the banks aren’t lending more money right now to them. Today they put up the traffic lights at the popeyes across from highland lakes at argyle forest and its been like a year or more since they rebuilt the intersection and put in the foundation for the lights and all this time they finally put them up. A simple thing for a truck to haul the poles and bring them there put up.

The College Street project just picked up. For the longest, there were a handful sitting on one corner of the property.  Within the last month or so, just about all of the sites are underway.

It's not the pace we're hoping for, but things do seem to be happening. Hopefully we can build on the successes where they are and correct for what's been missed.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey
