Spring Like Weather to Make Concrete Pour Possible – Monday, April 23 – 3am

With some Spring weather finally coming to Ithaca, we can pour some concrete! The 30-inch slab pour on the south side of the Harold’s Square project will take place Monday, April 23, beginning at 3am and go until complete.

The pour will involve the closure of the Green Street surface parking lot. This allows for the concrete trucks to be staged under this lot as part of the effort to avoid traffic congestion on Green Street. The surface lot will close at 6pm on Sunday, April 22, and open again at the conclusion of the pour in the afternoon of April 23.

The City Hall lot and loading zones to access Trader K’s, the Range, Autumn Leaves Used Books, Ten Forward Café, Angry Mom Records, and the pass throughs to the Commons, will remain open with 15-minute free parking. The Green Street parking lot is also easy to access and can be entered just 200 feet from the surface lot.

Any questions can be directed to vicki@brousconsulting.com. Let’s get it done!

Concrete Pour – Update 4-16-18

We are crossing our fingers that the weather will hold for the concrete pour this week. The team is currently planning on making the pour for the 30’’ mat slab this Wednesday (4-18-18) starting at 3am and continuing into the afternoon. If the weather does not cooperate, the pour will be postponed to Friday (4-20-18) starting at 3am. I will keep you informed of events as the week progresses.

Correction: Concrete Pour – April 10-11 – Update 4.10 2:18pm

The pour that was rescheduled from last week will take place this week, from April 10 to 11, for the 30-inch concrete slab pour on the south side of the Harold’s Square project. This is the slab for the 12-story tower and it must be poured continuously to ensure its integrity.

As we mentioned last week, the pour will involve the closure of the Green Street surface parking lot. This allows for the concrete trucks to be staged under this lot as part of the effort to avoid traffic congestion on Green Street. The surface lot will close at 6pm on Tuesday, April 10th, and open again at the conclusion of the pour in the afternoon of April 11. The pouring will begin at 3am, and will proceed until completed.

The City Hall lot and loading zones to access Trader K’s, the Range, Autumn Leaves Used Books, Ten Forward Café, Angry Mom Records, and the pass throughs to the Commons, will remain open with 15-minute free parking. The Green Street parking lot is also easy to access and can be entered just 200 feet from the surface lot.

Any questions can be directed to vicki@brousconsulting.com. Thank you for your patience. We look forward to completing the pour and moving ahead on the project.

Pour Postponed – Update 4/4/18

Due to weather and other concerns, the Harold’s Square concrete pour scheduled for this evening, April 4 to April 5, will now take place, weather willing, from April 11 to 12, 2018 (exactly one week later). The surface lot will be open from now until April 11 at 6pm. The pour will begin on April 12 at 3am and continue into the afternoon until it is complete.

Upstate weather is difficult to predict and with the importance of the concrete maintaining its structural integrity, we do not want to take any risks. We appreciate your patience.

Big Concrete Pour – Update – April 3

It is likely that the weather will hold tomorrow evening, April 4th to 5th, for the 30-inch concrete slab pour on the south side of the Harold’s Square project. This is a very large event as the slab is for the 12-story tower and it must be poured continuously in the right conditions.

The pour will involve the closure of the Green Street surface parking lot. This allows for 3 cleaning bays to be brought in so that the concrete trucks can be staged under this lot and not on Green Street, an effort to avoid traffic delays. The surface lot will close at 6pm on Wednesday, April 4th, and open again at the conclusion of the pour in the afternoon of April 5th. The pouring will begin in the early morning hours, starting at 3am, and will proceed until completed. The team has worked closely with the City of Ithaca to make decisions to reduce the inconvenience to residents and businesses. Please make sure to pay attention to changed traffic conditions and parking signs.

The City Hall lot and loading zones to access Trader K’s, the Range, Autumn Leaves Used Books, Ten Forward Café, Angry Mom Records, and the pass throughs to the Commons, will remain open with 15-minute free parking. The Green Street parking lot is also easy to access, and quite affordable, and can be entered just 200 feet from the surface lot.

If for any reason the pour needs to be rescheduled, a decision will be made by 10am on Wednesday, April 4, and we will remove the no-parking signs and reschedule for the next weather-appropriate date. We appreciate your patience during this time and encourage you to visit the Commons and support the downtown businesses that make it a great place to be.
