Pic of the Week

What we’ve been calling Boylan Flats turns out to be an extended-stay hotel on Boylan Avenue and they appear to be getting close to looking like they will open.

Two Cranes Up Over Smokey Hollow

A quick one today. I’ve been enjoying this shot from The West looking at Smokey Hollow and the second crane being built over the site. This summer we should really see a lot of construction activity in this area.

In case you missed it, FNB Tower is officially under construction. The tower crane has shown up at the site and crews have been pounding away. For me, it’ll be enjoyable to watch this mixed-use project go up and I think it’ll make a dramatic impact on City Plaza as it fills in the “360 […]
