As August comes to a close, the Plimpton Press is now completely gone.
The new apartments on the North side of Lenox and Nahatan are already clearly visible, as is the rear of the Shaw’s Plaza. Once the debris is gone it will be easier to see all the way through Lenox street in both directions for the first time in decades.
The railroad tracks that went to the original Guild street railroad overpass/bridge (replaced in the summer of 2016) can be seen in the 5th and 6th photos.
The next phase of the project is likely to begin soon on the East side of the site, up against the dead end of Rock street, where the first set of new buildings will be constructed.
