June 7 – Marble for the new entry was delivered from the Tennessee Marble Company today. This is the same quarry that supplied the marble for the original construction in 1893. Summit Masonry will be working hard on the installation in the coming weeks. The entry is scheduled for completion in August. Thanks to Downes Construction and Silver/Petrucelli + Associates for a great project so far.
April 22: The outline of the new entry and rooftop terrace are visible, and walls are coming up! If you blink, you may miss the progress as changes are happening every day. This phase of construction is scheduled to be complete by summer of this year, with the rest of the project finished by year’s end.
