It's a development to watch in 2021 as the building moves closer to occupancy.
The latest Zero Irving e-newsletter states the rooftop scaffolding has been removed. Also!
Bathroom tile installation has begun on the 14th floor and will continue moving up the building as available. The painter will be priming walls on the 11th and 12th floors. Lobby framing and rough-in work has commenced and will continue throughout this period.
The 21-story building, developed jointly by the city’s Economic Development Corp. and RAL Development Services, will feature 14 floors of market-rate office space as well as "a technology training center and incubator, co-working spaces and state-of-the-art event space ... on the seven floors beneath," per the Zero Irving announcement issued last October. Food-hall specialists UrbanSpace officially signed the lease for 10,000 square feet on the ground level late last summer.
And if you want to hear more, reps from RAL will be providing an overview tomorrow evening to CB3's Economic Development Committee. The item provides this: "status update on construction and upcoming leasing opportunities." (Zoom meeting info is at the CB3 website.)
The new building — long contested by local preservationists and community groups (see links below) — sits on the former site of a P.C. Richard & Son on city-owned property.
