Hope Street Sidewalk Reopened

After 15 months closed due to construction of a parking garage for Market Lofts, the west side of Hope street is once again open to pedestrians. While the barricades installed never entirely stemmed the tide of walking traffic, the closure had provided an obstacle to those making their way to Ralphs or walking north from Market Lofts.

A construction canopy remains over the reopened walkway, but should be removed once facade work on the garage is completed next month.

The garage will provide parking for Market Lofts residents, who currently park on a surface lot across Hope street.
