Current Renovations/Refurbishments

This is for the Rennovations/Reconstructions around the city that arent big enough to have a topic of their own. Or buildings that appear to beunder restoration...

What you can see through the scaffold is the complete job as the scaffold is coming down today.

There is now a sign on City Plaza advertising the refub that is due to begin shortly.
