Description: This private development project in the public right of way includes demolition of the existing Promenade buildings (formerly California Pizza Kitchen/Starbuck’s) to make way for a brand new retailer.  Renovation of the entire Promenade Plaza, where the center fountain now resides, will begin in late Summer 2017 to complete in June 2018.

Impacts: During demolition, there will be night time lane closures on Olympic Blvd. (eastbound) from Locust Street to South Main Street to continue through April 2017. During new construction, night time work will require a right lane closure (northbound) in front of the Promenade through the project completion in June 2018. 

Temporary fencing has been installed around the existing buildings.  In April 2017, a 16-foot high barricade will displace the temporary fencing as the construction begins.

All existing stores in the Promenade will remain open with uninterrupted public access during Broadway Plaza hours.
