Interior Work & Garage Construction Continue

Interior work on both 1 Dog Lane and 9 Dog Lane continues.  A tight roof and temporary heat allow for work to progress uninterrupted on the residential spaces and on the first-floor commercial spaces.  In the meantime, exterior work continues, including completing the window installation as well as ongoing brick work and trim work.

9 Dog Lane

Work on the parking garage is also progressing, with the foundations now clearly visible.  Recently, a new construction entry to the site was created off Route 195 in anticipation of the delivery of additional materials for the garage.
