Construction on National Science Foundation Buildings Got Underway Today

Block 8 Construction - National Science Foundation
In case you have been living under a rock, you know that the National Science Foundation (NSF) is moving into the Carlyle/Eisenhower East neighborhood sometime in 2017. You can find our previous posts on this subject at this link.

I am posting about this project once again because construction on the site began today. Crews fenced around the job site as you can see from the photos and began removing the electrical work (street lights, etc). Once this is done, the excavation portion of the project will begin. Crews will be building connecting towers for the project. You can see drawings on what the buildings will look like when complete at this link.

NOTE: Due to the construction, crews have closed off one entrance to the Hoffman Town Center parking garage (see photo below). You will have to use Swamp Fox Road to enter and exit on the Eisenhower Avenue side of the Town Center.
