Progress continues on Dillon Center overhaul
December 8, 2005
DILLON – Construction crews passed several hurdles recently in the Dillon Center reconstruction project that will add 37 condominiums on top of the existing building at 135 Main St. in Dillon.A final concrete pour provided finished floors and roof decking on all three levels of the new two-level parking structure. Utilities, including the storm water roof drainage system, automatic fire sprinkler system, sanitary sewer and domestic water service to the residential units, are nearing completion within the parking structure. Crews from Denver-based dcb Construction began extending utilities to all residential units over the retail space. The first and most comprehensive phase of the interior portion of the project is 60 percent complete. That task involves building a new structural steel platform over the existing building to accommodate substantial loads of the residential units. The milestone clears the way for the second phase to begin, which involves placing the modular homes on the structure. Lakeside Bowl, which was closed for six months during construction, reopened with upgrades to enhance the facility’s decor, resulting in a more open and modern bowling space.Construction on the project began in May, and developers are hoping to complete the job next spring. The building will be renamed La Riva del Lago Condominiums.
