Actually pretty smart to push back the start so that the project finishes up around the time the road work is wrapping up.

Construction has been pushed back multiple times.

I will not hold my breath that they start in Feb.

It was pushed back to Sept 2019 in August of 2018

October of 2016 construction was to start in summer of 17.

and when it was announced in 2013 construction was supposed to start in 2014.

I am sure I have missed one or two times construction was pushed back but I think everyone gets the point.

Announcing when construction will start means NOTHING with this project. Shovels to dirt is what means something.

If I understand correctly, the I35 project will take 4 years. Oh joy! One would think if the Riverfront project starts as early as next February it would be finished well before 2023. But..........then........who knows?

My assumption was that in year 4 the work would be primarily finish work. I was thinking the main arteries would be open by then. Probably a silly assumption on my part.
I tend to be an optimist.

Just remember this is only half of the total project expected to be finished. Who knows how many years down the road it will be until they find funding for the other half.

I am aware it keeps getting pushed back. Just sharing the latest news coverage.

Is it even the same developer now that it was in 13? (I'm talking about the River Front now).

Incidentally this is not the first time period in which a developer announced plans for river front development down town. I recall someone in the mid 80s as well and I recall someone around 2000/01 time period as well.

It's not the same developer for Brazos Promenade as 2013, but I believe those guys who used to have the development rights were trying to do a $130m private development called Brazos Commons right next door (next to Robinson Tower). These are the last comments I have seen on Brazos Commons:

https://www.kwtx.com/content/news/Waco--More-hotels-interested-Brazos-Commons-developers-say-473990053.html

Anyone heard anything about Brazos Commons in the past 18 months?
