Construction

Construction is underway. Over the last few months, crews: 

  • Removed plants and soil from the landscape planters in the plaza;
  • Removed the inside of the fountain and pipes beneath it; and, 
  • Ordered new pavers for the plaza. 

Fountain Removal

Crews started removing the fountain the week of March 16. This demolition work should take about two weeks to finish (depending on weather). Road, lane, and sidewalk closures are not expected for this phase. Mainly the area surrounding the fountain and planters is expected to be blocked off. Weekend work may vary.

Planter Repairs 

Repairs to the planters on both sides of the plaza will be ongoing for the next few months. 

Pavers Installation

We're expecting to re-install the pavers at the planters/fountain beginning in April. Then, the rest of the pavers installation in the plaza is expected to continue through the summer/early fall. 

Visiting the Plaza

Visitors have access to buildings in the plaza. There may be temporary sidewalk, lane, or road closures on Fayetteville St. between E. Davie St. and E. Lenoir St. throughout the project. More details coming soon. 

We’ve also adjusted all plaza events going on during construction.
