It's been a little more than a year since a groundbreaking ceremony was held at The Wharf along the Southwest Waterfront. Since then, the site has been a hive of activity, with demolition, utility work, pile driving, parking lot construction, new streetlights, dock rebuilding, and other waterside activities. Now, excavation at The Wharf is now well underway. Below are a few photos:
