After what seems like years of the old Lumber Shed standing as nothing more than a shell along the Capitol Riverfront in Near Southeast, work is finally underway to transform the old Navy yard building into a glass retail and restaurant pavilion. Once complete, the 30,000 sq-ft. glass pavilion will have five restaurants and the second floor will house some offices for the developer Forest City.
The project is now on track for opening up next Summer including the recently announced NYC import restaurant Osteria Morini. With the new residential and restaurants opening in the currently under construction Boiler Maker Shops, this area is going to be hot come next summer! [Rendering: Forest City]
