Tracking the CBHC-Don Alfonso-Hanson, etc., Rehab Project
« on: August 03, 2017, 09:15:01 PM »
So today was the first sign of activity on the site of the big State-Ward-Main project that I am not looking forward to. The site includes the big Comprehensive Behavior Health Care (CBHC) building, the Don Alfonso Restaurant, the Hanson Real Estate office and some Main St businesses

This morning, I heard some mini-piledriver sounds and saw the below image by the CBHC. You can see someone carrying a big borer bit. I later saw similar activity on the Ward St side near Main St. I have no idea what they were doing...........maybe planting charges for the explosive demolition of the building? What a shot that would be!

This is the separate thread where I'll post whatever I see every step of the way. Obviously, I won't be be able to see as much of whatever happens on the Main St side, but I have a very good view of the State St side from my living room and will document my vanishing river view as the new building goes up.

THE DON ALFONSO

That would be a pretty fancy name for the building.

The only name I don't want to see on it is "RiverView".   >:(

Since it is right up the block from the college, they could name it:

Thanks for the info, Mike.


1 - Last weekend, workers dragged all this cardboard out of the CBHC building. It sat there for a week.

2 - Yesterday, someone in a James E. Hanson truck came by and took it away.

3 - This is a wider shot showing the three main buildings: the CBHC, Don Alfonso restaurant and the James E. Hanson realty company that's not only carting away all the CBHC cardboard, but is also.............

4 - ............STILL OPEN! I saw at least a half-dozen people drop by to pay rent or whatever, while...............

5 - ............right outside their window, soil samples were being drilled out in their parking lot.

6 - A little later, a flatbed arrived to pick up the apparatus
