Ongoing Construction Update
Demolition of the Center Ramp will begin April 2nd, 2018. This will be an active construction site for more than one year. When complete in Fall 2019, this site will feature new apartment homes, new retail shops, and 100+ stalls of indoor customer parking all centered around a series of pedestrian ways and public plazas.
Market Street Construction Update
May 11, 2018
There will be a lot of construction activity in the next several weeks. A detailed forecast for each project follows:
North Ramp Expansion
Construction activities in the North Ramp continue to move along quickly and continue to be on schedule for Fall 2018. Installation of the outstanding brick veneer continues this week moving from east to west. An entire section of the ramp has already been completed. The process is amazing to watch as they cut and fit each piece to form a tasteful front for the ramp. Also this week you will see the 3rd level of the east addition formed and concrete poured.
The large cement box on the west side is the snow chute and will allow for snow removal from the ramp this upcoming Winter.
The New Nolan Mains
(Formerly Center Ramp and Clancy Lot)
Pedestrian walkways will remain open with the exception of May 14 - 30 (day and night) for additional storm utility work. Closure will be from the 5.0 Mall (access to Mall through the north door on the west side) to the transformer located near At Home.These dates have been changed from the previous update. Walkways will be open for the Edina Art Fair the weekend of June 1-3.
Shoring along the south and east sides closest to the neighboring businesses will be a "Drill and Drop" process that creates less noise and vibrations. This process will begin on Monday, May 14 through Wednesday, May 30, starting on the west side by Coconut Thai moving east towards Spalon. Again, these dates have been changed from the previous update. Excavation of debris and soil in the area continues. You will see trucks exiting the gate area on Halifax heading West, also exiting on Market and making the loop on 50th and heading west.
Take a moment to view the peep holes in the walkways to see all the action of the project. Videos also have been installed throughout the walkways showing all the wonderful details of the New Nolan Mains.
