I thought construction wasn't supposed to start until next year?  Or am I mistaken.

Strolled through there today and there is absolutely zero signs of any work,.

 

Work requires permits. The permit process is slow.

Well I would think they would paint or redecorate or something in the interim to show that there's movement on the project. 

 

I am following this project closer because I think it could really have a huge impact on DT.

 

But if they don't turn it inside out and put everything facing out to the streets on the street level I don't think it will work. It's my observation that women do not like to walk through the Pavillions because it is very enclosed. Which is understandable.

Acc to the HBJ article:

 

 

"Construction will begin this month and is scheduled to take about six to nine months to complete. The project will remain open during construction."

 

 

That was April 4th. So just looking at it from the street it appears the schedule has been pushed back. Already discouraging (to me.)

Another month, still ZERO activity.

 

I predict they are just going to build out for office space in the empty areas. There won't be any new retail or redevelopment. They know there isn't enough support for it.

I believe they stated last week that part of the reason they were doing away with the food trucks was because the redevelopment was starting up full swing.

 

I think we should begin to see work being done relatively soon.

We'll see.

 

Don't get me wrong I would LOVE for them to come out with a new and improved dt destination. I'm all for it. I would be there a lot.

Thanks TowerSpotter, I did not ask "what" are jumbotrons. I know what they are. I asked where are the jumbotrons? I don't see them in the renderings. I see something that looks like a banner or a sign.  I was hoping that the new owners were going to install jumbotrons but these renderings don't look very conclusive.
