Northside's Factory Square about to begin

NORTHSIDE (FOX19)- Factory Square has been in the works for over five years, but the project is set to begin in the next few days.

Factory Square is an $18 million mixed-use development by at the old American Can factory, at 4101 Spring Grove Avenue and will include 110 loft apartments and approximately 12,000 square feet of commercial office space.

Environmental remediation on the 180,000-square-foot building is about 95 percent complete, and contractors are expected soon to begin façade restoration and planned site work.

Interior work should begin by mid-September and take 10-12 months to complete with the first units hitting the market in August of 2011.

You may remember Joe Biden visiting the site in February of this year calling the company a shovel ready job.
