Happy Labor Day

Each day, over 150 laborers, carpenters, electricians, sheet metal workers, masons, roofers, pipefitters and other tradespeople go to work building the new Charlesview and transforming Western Ave into the new vibrant, mixed use heart of North Brighton.  On behalf of the The Community Builders, Inc., Charlesview, Inc. and our redevelopment partners, we wish them – and you – and happy, safe and restful Labor Day weekend.

Townhouse Framing Begins

Truckloads of prefabricated wall panels and floor trusses began arriving on site this week, as the townhouses wrap up foundations and begin framing.  Within months the site’s 22 buildings will be recognizable in form.  Meanwhile, the two largest buildings progress on the outside, with framing and sheathing, and the inside, with unit framing and interior plumbing and electrical.  See below for progress around the site!
