Scribner Place rising, obstructionist stock plunging.

Just thought I’d augment a Tribune piece from Sunday with a few photos.

Crews working on Scribner Place foundation, by Eric Scott Campbell (News-Tribune).

With support pilings in place — and the incessant clanging noise created by their installation no more — Scribner Place construction workers are laying the fitness and aquatic center’s foundation before erecting the building’s steel skeleton late next month.

Naysayers are that way for a reason, probably genetic, but it's getting more and more difficult to reconcile the gloom and doom scenarios with reality on the ground in downtown New Albany.

Across the top of the flood wall you can see that there is something going on as far as construction. Does anyone know if this is part of the walkway planned for the riverfront developement?

Yes, it is. I'll try to make it down there and snap some photos this week.
