Construction Begins

Construction at the building’s site (where Dolorosa meets San Pedro Creek) officially got underway on December 18, 2020. Public health conditions precluded an in-person groundbreaking ceremony, but a few of the project’s key stakeholders stopped by over the course of the day to mark the occasion with a shovel-in-the-ground moment.
