Construction Progress at old MJH.
CFA, the owner of the southern portion of the former MJH site, is putting the skin on the building that will serve as its new headquarters and is on schedule for a December move in.
Octagon, the owner of the northern portion, reports demolition is nearly finished in the Cardwell building and new tenants Hemoshear and Varian, a manufacturer of medical devices and software, plan to be operating in their facilities in early 2014. Electrical, plumbing, and mechanical improvements are ongoing, most of which are in the building's basement and not visible to neighbors. We will soon see Octagon's contractors working on the utility yard for the Cardwell portion of the project. Improvements to the Rucker building will follow work on the Cardwell wing. They expect to have construction completed by November of 2014. Neighbors should also expect to see work on the front entrance and roundabout over the coming months as tenants prepare to move in this winter.
Comprehensive Plan Update Meetings.
The City has scheduled three meetings (see Upcoming Events), for Charlottesvillians to help plan the look and feel of the City. What do you want for our neighborhood --- pocket parks, neighborhood businesses, more sidewalks, bike lanes? More information about the comprehensive plan and the upcoming meetings.
