  • Do you have an idea about what the construction is at the projo building at the exchange st/Dorrance st intersection? It seemed to be under construction for a while without much resolve.

  • Not sure what the finished product ultimately will be? Heard a cafe/restaurant potentially.. The parking lot across the street is also a prime location for development.
