Exciting Updates on Kensington Plaza Improvements
Construction is set to kick off at the beginning of August, and we anticipate its completion in the Fall of 2023. During this time, the plaza will be temporarily closed for construction, with activities confined to the plaza’s footprint as much as possible. Rest assured, the sidewalk south of the plaza and business access will remain open for your convenience.
While we strive to keep any disturbances to a minimum, it’s essential to note that there may be construction noise and dust in the area. However, we have taken proactive measures to ensure that noise, dust, and other potential inconveniences are kept at reasonable levels. Motorists are encouraged to be patient and expect occasional delays, especially in the vicinity of the plaza. If possible, consider using alternate routes to navigate through the area.
