I reported on two of these projects in July 2015, but I've added a few other ones here.
- Centennial Plaza
- La Quinta Inn
- Rail-Trail Housing
- New Library
- Sierra Meadows Park
- Clovis Community Hospital
Let's start with the big one: Centennial Plaza. This is the heart of Old Town on Pollasky, and I last took a look in May 2016 when the new plaza was finished. That update was focused on the street improvements, but now new buildings are rising up to frame the plaza.
Only 3 stories tall, the new building does make an impression in a downtown where a second story is a novelty.
No basement here
Close to the street
Construction has also started on the building framing the other side of the plaza
La Quinta Inn
A wee bit south, we find construction has finally started on La Quinta Inn. I reported on this one in May of 2015. Aside from building on a vacant lot, what makes this development interesting is that the hotel will be built over parking. This signals that demand for development in Old Town has increased to the point where large surface parking lots no longer make economic sense.
It's a start.
