Downtown demo rolling along

Demolition is rolling along today at Sixth Street Southwest and First Avenue in downtown Rochester.

05152012gerrarddemo1This is clearing the way for the Metropolitan Market Place development, a four-story apartment complex with the new People’s Food Coop grocery store based on the main level.

An official groundbreaking is scheduled for Friday, but plenty of dirt is flying today.

The La Crosse, Wis.-based Gerrard Corp. is building the project.

The 62 apartments are expected to ready for tenants possibly by August 2013, which also is the target opening date for the People’s Food Coop.

Is this project going to have an effect on the 6th St project (or the other way)??
