The large mixed-use Overtown project known as Block 55 has had a foundation pour.
Vertical construction is underway, with several cranes now installed.
FAA records show that several cranes were recently approved for the site. There will be a total of four cranes installed, according to a social media post by John Longarini.
Photos by Ryan RC Rea last month show that two of the cranes have already been installed.
The foundation pour took place in recent days, Longarini wrote.
Block 55 will include:
- 578 affordable apartments for seniors
- 250,000 square feet of retail space
- 1,050 parking spaces
- 1,400 square foot police substation
Tenants will include Target (with a Starbucks and CVS inside), an Aldi grocery, Burlington department store, and Ross Dress for Less.
