Collegetown Terrace gets Landscaping, more work on Building 5

August 15, 2013 // by Jason Henderson


Of all the projects going on right now, this one is definitely the most panorama-friendly. Building 5’s construction is rolling along, with some new light steel framing alongside the heavy steel framing put up a few weeks ago. I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing that the heavy steel framing must be for a multi-level parking section of the building, which shows a car entrance and separate exit on the site plan.
The landscaping makes a big visual impact. The bright-colored facades on Buildings 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 along State Street blend into the hill much better now, and I couldn’t tell you what any of these plants are, but they look quality. Once the rest of the landscaping is complete and we have a good rain, I believe we will see the final look.
