Whether you’re planting a garden or a new foundation, you have to dig in the dirt!
With Grow Community phase 2 site work underway, excavators and earth movers are rolling to and fro to prepare the foundations for the Salal and Juniper. Dirt is being stockpiled on the south half of the property, soil that will come into play as backfill once the parking garage foundations and lid are completed.
Concrete work will begin even as excavation for the rest of the garage continues. It may be hard to see all this underground work from the street, but the garage structure will soon be visible, poking up out of the ground in the coming weeks and months.
Trees removed during the site work are moving on to their next purpose. Root balls have been saved for use in salmon habitat development in spawning streams, while some of the trees themselves will be refined into custom furniture by an island craftsman.
