Checking in behind the plywood at 316-318 E. Third St.
Time for a check behind the plywood here at 316-318 E. Third St., where a Karl Fischer-designed, 33-unit apartment building is in the works ... replacing a circa-1835 single-family home.
EVG reader Bobby G. sent us these photos showing the work in progress...
Bobby points out that this area was known as the Dry Dock district ... and that ground water is close to the surface in this area, especially at high tide...
So. The cement the workers poured Tuesday quickly became submerged...
Should be good for mosquitos soon enough.
Also, in the middle photo in this post... you can see the progress at Alphabet Plaza, the 12-story mixed-used apartment building at Avenue D and East Houston.
