re: Does anybody have any Picture updates of the Southside expansion to TS?


does anyone know if plaques like the ones in the pic below are still suppose to be going up around the westside plaza area? I know these renderings look a little different then how it turned out so i figured maybe not.

What are they doing on the north side?


Making like a plaza, I guess similar to the way the West Plaza is

I really hope they don't splatter Tounces' face all over every flag. It will get to a point where you can't look any direction without Tounces winking at your crackerjack.

That's just shite the designer threw in the initial renderings. They had the same stuff for the West Side champions plaza and toonces is nowhere to be found.

should be mentioned that i'm sure the massive amount of rainfall we've had since December is putting a hamper on construction.


In addition to the logistics of having multiple rigs, avoiding underground utilities and failed piles. The soil's fairly consistent but loss of skin friction means you have to completely abandon a pile and drive another.

Yes.

ETA:

After BCSF they will start working on the walk (which is where the rendering is looking from) and put in the finishing touches around the North and West plazas.

Is the north side supposed to be finished by this season?


Isn't there going to be just the north scoreboard for this season?

The plan is to get the North done before BCSF and finishing touches on the West and completion of the champion's walk before the season starts.

Also, bap, I don't think all of the things shown on the rendering will be in the finished product and I know there is at least one feature not shown that will.

Care to share what that one feature is? You wrote that kind of provocatively.

The entire project is a Lemoine/Brasfield & Gorrie Joint Venture. We sell materials to Lemoine/B&G and many of the subcontractors on the jobsite. I think the entire project is in the neighborhood of $85M. Can't wait to see the finished product.
