Work site from the River Walk level. They really cut up that old stone wall. I guess they'll rebuild some of it later with original stone?

From an earlier article:
David Merritt, president of the Merritt Development Group, said a report on archaeological findings from the site has been submitted to the OHP, and that the City has closely monitored site preparation. Some of the limestone blocks from the wall are going to be relocated and reused on the property, he added.

“Elements of the wall are important to retain,” Merritt said. “We think we’ve done a good job retaining important aspects of the wall and allowing access to the river.”

HDRC Chairman Michael Guarino, an architect and educator, said he often takes his students by the former Solo Serve site to help them understand downtown’s history.

“[The wall blocks] are unique and are a testimony to a number of buildings that have been on this site,” he said.

Guarino commended the developers for attending an HDRC architecture review subcommittee meeting, praising their willingness to incorporate as much of the retaining wall as possible.

“Approaches I have seen from other developers would have been to tear the wall down,” he said.

https://imgur.com/ is a better photo host. I've been using them for about 5 years now. Photobucket isn't allowing hotlinking anymore and I'm not familiar with most others.

I wonder if they're not tearing down the building that was the northern end of the solo serve building after all. I thought it was going to be temporary green space or something, but it still stands with its original facade exposed. It's pretty nice looking.

They are not tearing it down. It was part of the original demo-plan, but assumption is that with Weston Urban rehabbing the buildings on the corner that there was a buyer who wanted to redevelop it or the development company itself is going to.
