The home of the former state capitol (way back in the 1800s) has undergone a tremendous amount of change in the past few years. Once empty buildings have new life, and if you sit in the middle of the park, you can see construction all around you. This little part of downtown is turning into a massive residential area, with lots of events in the park itself. New residential should be available by the end of the year, with more continuously on the way in the upcoming years.We're even seeing new construction for the first time in a long time.
In the past few years, we've done maps of Capitol Park's buildings and renovations. It's time again to see what's going on in this little corner of downtown. One of our map points is just outside of Capitol Park, but very visible if you look up. Got a tip for us? Please leave a comment or email us on the tip line!
