We are pleased to say that the construction of Myrtle Avenue Plaza is winding down. A significant amount of seating, including benches, tables, and platform seating has been installed and is already proving popular with the local lunch crowd.

Additional seating and plaza amenities will continue to arrive as construction continues. Below is a recap what’s already in place and what’s still to come in the Plaza:

What’s Completed

  • Benches installed
  • Planted areas formed
  • Tree pits created
  • Game tables installed
  • New trash and recycling bins arrived
  • Sidewalk pouring complete
  • All underground utilities in place

What’s Still to Come
