Atlantic Crossing’s vertical construction is well underway with the first two buildings taking shape to bring ground floor shops and restaurants along a pedestrian promenade. The building at the northeast corner of Atlantic Ave. and NE 6th Ave. will be topped by offices, while the second building’s upper floors are devoted to apartments.

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.
