Holladay Properties and Holladay Construction Group, the General Contractor, have been hard at work since May on their latest development project in Portage; The Promenade at Founder’s Square. This mixed-use development will encompass 15 acres and include 304 residential units as well as 10,200 square feet of ground floor retail, commercial, and restaurant space.
So far, the work on this large and innovative project has gone off without a problem, and the crew at Holladay wanted to celebrate that fact and reward their subcontractors working on the job.
“We had a pizza party because subcontractors have been on site for roughly six months, and we haven’t had any loss of time incidents. Everything has gone smoothly on site with no issues, and we wanted to let the subs know we appreciate all their hard work,” said Clayton Trueblood, Assistant Project Manager for Holladay Construction Group.
There is a lot of work to do yet for the Promenade, which should see the opening of its First Phase in Spring of 2018. Currently, Building One of The Promenade is topped out and work is underway on the interiors, and Building Two is well on its way to being topped out in the near future.
“It feels good to have this success. It’s a high-profile project with lots of attention and we’re still on schedule. With lots of people on site and everyone working well with each other and zero loss of time or recordable injuries. It’s great,” said Trueblood.
Trueblood oversees a lot of the scheduling of subcontractors, some paperwork, and everything else in between on the job site, so seeing the vision of the promenade come to fruition in a safe manner has been especially rewarding.
There will be five buildings in Phase One of the Promenade project, and four more in Phase two, as well as a pool house. With the way things have progressed so far, The Promenade Founder’s Square is looking at a bright and steady construction process that will see the center of Portage given new life and leisure for residents. Holladay has already hired a Property Manager for the project who attended Portage's Founder’s Scare event recently to hand out candy and information about the Promenade at Founder’s Square residential apartments!
