The Ice House Lofts on Main street between Floyd and Brook Streets officially started construction this week. More accurately, they are first undergoing interior demolition to get the building ready for construction, but it’s still activity. We had a chance to tour the former Arctic Building last November and learn about developer David Barhorst’s plans. In the end, 52 apartments will fill the seven-story, 62,000 square foot building. Read all about the project here.
Barhorst said today the demolition work will last for about four months while the final details of a construction loan are being worked out. He doesn’t expect any problems finalizing the loan. Crews were spotted yesterday in the old ice manufacturing plant off Washington Street removing debris. The building must also undergo asbestos abatement. Expect to see real construction activity including cutting windows into the solid brick facade starting sometime this fall.
