From the looks of the Azusa building and the Wilson Yard lot, construction is behind schedule. We stopped by the site today and noticed not much has changed since our last visit.
From the Pioneer-Press:
"Last month, the City Council approved increasing Wilson Yard's TIF subsidy from $35.6 million to $43.1 million, stipulating that construction begin on the Target and residential units no later than July. Holsten attributed the increase to a 15 percent rise in construction costs and materials.Holsten told task force members and a handful of residents attending the mid-morning meeting that toxic soil removal had already begun on the site. Demolition of the old Aldi's and the Azusa Building will start in July."
Well, its July 30 and the Azusa building and old Aldi are still intact and there is no sign of construction on Target or the residential units. Hmmmmmmm. Shocking.
