The preparation for construction of Phase 1B has begun with the demolition of 10 Dog Lane (the former “Phil’s” building). The demolition of 4 Dog Lane (the former location of Storrs Automotive) will begin soon as well. Once both buildings are demolished and some other site preparation work is completed, the construction of Phase 1B will begin.
|Demolition of 10 Dog Lane has begun.|
|Phase 1B will be a building built adjacent to the parking garage.|
Phase 1B will consist of one building which will be adjacent to the parking garage. The building will feature commercial businesses on the first floor with residential units on the upper floors. The residential units will be part of The Oaks on the Square. Lease negotiations for the commercial spaces are underway, including the lease for the UConn Co-op’s new satellite location.
Meanwhile, construction of Phase 1A continues with façade, roof, and interior work on 1 Dog Lane and 9 Dog Lane and interior work on the parking garage.
