Transforming the Postal Plaza: demolition continues!

The Postal Plaza demolition crew doesn’t mess around: in just a week, they’ve opened up the Postal Plaza—and created a lot of dust! This week’s photos are all by Bruce Crauder, the OSUMA’s interim director, who stopped by last Friday to see how the work was progressing.

A view from the lobby looks familiar—but where's all that light coming from?

The view back towards the lobby—remember when this was all office spaces (and student art)? Newly visible above the lobby are the windows to the catwalk that suurounds the central building space.

Another view of the open space and wonderful high ceilings. I can easily envision this as a gallery space now!

All that aluminum framing from the drop ceilings has to go somewhere—for the moment, that place is apparently the basement.

Another view of the basement.

As you can see, things are moving quickly downtown. We’ll be sure to keep updating the blog as work progresses—we’re all excited to see the building being given new life!
