This may or may not of appeared in media reports so far, but just literally got an email from my owners’ association minutes ago with these Penfield updates and became excited to share:
Construction has begun this week. Project designs are meant to achieve LEED Silver certification and will incorporate the historic front facade of the old Public Safety Building. The building will house 254 market rate apartments and a Lund’s Grocery store all with off-street parking.
Fencing and barriers are going up over the next couple of weeks as well as removal of the defunct skyway over 10th Street.
In late July temporary steel bracing will be installed to save the old facade before interior demolition begins.
