City Honors Update - Day 106


The foundation for the new natatorium is taking shape on the former front lawn of City Honors. Construction workers were laying the foundation's forms this week.

Why did they build these additions on their lawn when they could have utiized land on the blocks around the school? Like across the street? I think an expansion beyond this one square block could have benefited and stabilized the area. Instead it looks like they are trying to corral the students into this one now-overbuilt square block - trying to avoid any community interaction. That original lawn framed the building and had the appropriate scale to the building.

Anon,

I imagine you've seen the site plan - right here. Future expansion across the street, to the west, includes a number of additional athletic facilities.

In future construction posts I hope to include a few interviews with the design and planning team.

Does anyone know more about the gravesites unearth there?

Crisa,

I'll be updating about this in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, if anyone has information about this they'd like to share, please do.

Thank you. I can't find a thing beyond what was in the local media.
