Yesterday the construction fence surrounding the University of Louisville‘s Clinical & Translational Research Building came down. The new $143.1 million building on the corner of Hancock Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard won’t open until July, but much of the exterior site work is already complete. Workers were seen installing a glass canopy overhanging the building’s main entrance as the fence was hauled away.
Today, crews were removing the construction-worn asphalt on surrounding streets in preparation for repaving. Signs noting “Sidewalk Closed” were still placed on site, so the plaza might not be open for a little longer. The Clinical & Translational Research Building’s architectural services were provided by Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Chovan of West Main Street and SmithGroup of Detroit.
