Construction update on the El Moore Gardens

We’re into the new year, and it’s about time for an update on the progress of the area adjacent to the El Moore which we are calling the El Moore Gardens. The Gardens project consists of 2 parts: an actual garden area with trees, shrubs, lawn, walkways and benches; and a 2-story building which will eventually house retail and food-service businesses. Most of the greenery has either been planted or kept safely for the winter. The building is nearing completion. Here are some photos so you can see the progress.

Just as we did with the rooftop cabins, we are using used lath, this time to line the walls of the staircase.
