Two of the downtown redevelopment projects approved this year are progressing. Framing of the second story of the Cornerstone project located at the southeast corner of South First Street and East Lincoln Highway is now complete. Future commercial uses on the first floor include Barb City Bagels, slated to open in early 2018, and Tavern on Lincoln, a new restaurant planning to open in the summer of 2018.
Facade work recently commenced on the eastern most buildings of the Plaza DeKalb project located at the northeast corner of North Second Street and East Lincoln Highway. The facade work will be completed this fall and demolition and reconstruction of the remaining buildings in the project will begin next spring. Once completed, Plaza DeKalb will contain 23 apartment units and first floor commercial space.

In addition to these larger projects, several other locations in and around the downtown made noticeable improvements this summer. Sundog IT completed an exterior overhaul of its new home at 230 East Lincoln Highway, and Gordon Hardware renewed its look with a fresh coat of exterior paint. These efforts continue to enhance downtown DeKalb!
