YOUNGSTOWN

The restored copper statues are tentatively scheduled to be returned to the Mahoning County Courthouse roof June 27, James Fortunato, county purchasing director, told the county commissioners Thursday.

Plans call for the statues to be on public display in front of the courthouse from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day before they are hoisted to their pedestal atop the 106-year-old building, which is now under a $6 million restoration, he said.

Seems like a unique opportunity to get a close-up look at the statues.

So, today is the day!

I would have gotten some photos at lunch, but it was cloudy.  Thankfully, a co-worker was told to go over and take some photos earlier this morning, when it was still sunny.

YOUNGSTOWN

High above the ground floor of Youngstown State University’s new Barnes & Noble bookstore – which opens Monday at 8 a.m. – construction workers meticulously installed a 10-foot graphic depicting former YSU track runner Nina Grambling mid-stride.

...

The bookstore, which broke ground last October, is part of a major expansion of YSU’s properties west of the campus, which includes a 220-bed university apartment complex.

New ‘Flex’ Building Debuts at LindenPointe
By Sean Posey | August 17, 2017

HERMITAGE, Pa. – The new $2.5 million CHIP building is the latest addition to the LindenPointe Innovative Business Campus. The facility, now available for sale or lease, opened to members of the public on Wednesday.

The 12,700-square-foot facility is a “flex building” that can readily be divided and is designed for multiple potential uses, said John Mastrian, of the Community Hope Investment Partners — or CHIP — board of directors. “It can be ideal for engineering groups, high-tech, manufacturing.”

This is one of those "what's new, downtown" articles:

New downtown development coming to light

YOUNGSTOWN

A saw roars in one corner of the heart of Youngstown and, in another, a jackhammer beats a rhythm on concrete.

Construction is happening throughout downtown making way for new restaurants, bars and a hotel.

The entrepreneurs behind the ventures all agree: They are excited to be a part of what’s happening here.

ISLE Prepares Building to Move there in February
By George Nelson | October 4, 2017

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Iron and String Life Enhancement expects to be in its new offices on Fifth Avenue in February 2018.

Space is being renovated at 28-32 Fifth Ave., which will house ISLE’s administrative offices, including payroll and human resources, said James Sutman, ISLE president. ISLE provides services to individuals with developmental disabilities.

I put this here because this is a finished project.  These buildings were boarded up when I moved here, 17 years ago.  So, I assume they needed a lot more work than just replacing storefronts and windows, when they started work, about 2 years ago.
