Downtown’s newest tower crane was installed over the last weekend on the campus of Jefferson Community & Technical College on Second Street to help speed along construction of their new Allied Health Building. The new $25.6 million, four-story building has begun to rise out of the ground over the last few months as concrete columns project from the first floor.
Around the corner, in a tight space that was once the seldom used terraced courtyard, crews have been installing formwork in preparation for a concrete pour next week that will enclose the basement. Once the concrete has set on the ground level, expect to see evidence of progress quicken as the second level takes shape. The character of the street changes dramatically as a void is filled in and the urban edge of the city is defined. This new building will be clad predominantly in metal panels, brick, and glass and features a prominent stair tower along Second Street as well as a defined cornice line. The structure was designed by Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Chovan. of Louisville.
