the Grove goes vertical

If you’ve driven past Grow Community lately, you’ll have noticed that things are really building up. Emphasis on “up.” Construction teams are pushing skyward with framing underway for the Salal building in Grow phase 2.

Framing of the Elan building comes next, while a concrete pour for the Juniper garage floor begins this week. Behind the scenes, power utility work will continue through early June.

Come by and watch the progress as our newest neighborhood, the Grove, really takes shape.
