The city of Lexington is demanding Centre Point developers take necessary steps to fill in the large hole in the center of downtown. A written notice was delivered to the Webb Companies office Tuesday afternoon.
After weeks of little activity, crews began Monday building two big cranes at the Centre Point project site in downtown Lexington. Developer Dudley Webb says the cranes, one 260 feet tall, the other 300 feet, will be up for some time. "The big booms that swing are over the project site and they'll use those to load the concrete up into the site,” said Webb. “And those will be up through completion of the project."
The Centre Point commercial development in the heart of downtown Lexington is in full construction mode. It's a large scale project, recently redefined in scope, approaching a cost of 400 million dollars and including hotel-retail-office- and condominium uses.
