Atlantic Crossing is preparing to begin vertical construction of the first retail and office building at the northeast corner of Atlantic Avenue and NE 6th Ave. At the south end of the site, the initial underground parking garage is taking shape with the final concrete pours, which provide the post tension slabs for the buildings. At the north end of the site, further excavation for the underground garage will soon follow.
In preparation for utility work, a dozen mature Royal Palm trees were relocated, at Atlantic Crossing’s expense, from the eastern block (Atlantic Plaza) to city-owned properties. Construction activity continues to be staged to minimize inconvenience for neighbors and visitors. For pedestrian safety, covered walkways are in place along NE 6th Ave. and will continue along Atlantic Ave. between NE 6th and 7th Aves. The only street closure is NE 7th Ave. north of NE 1st. St., implemented at Palm Trail neighbors’ request, with bike and pedestrian access remaining open.
