Developer Breaks Ground on Last of New Downtown Buildings

Fairmount Properties' "Building C" under construction in redevelopment block

As backhoes and dump trucks moved behind them the development partners behind downtown Kent's redevelopment ceremonially broke ground on yet another new, multi-million building today.

Fairmount Properties' "Building C" will stand at the corner of South DePeyster and Erie streets within the redevelopment block.

The five-story building will bring with it the more than 7,000 square feet Bricco white tablecloth restaurant on the first floor and 32 upscale apartments on the upper floors.

The new building is the third to rise within the city's redevelopment block and is the seventh within the redevelopment area.

"We're just rounding the block," Kent Mayor Jerry Fiala said this morning.

Look for full coverage Saturday on Kent Patch.

surely do hope there will be enough parking. and not with coin meters. rather something like a smartphone can add money to. in otherwords, convenient. love the downtown area. will be glad when it's done. hopefully, erie and s. water will have a traffic and/or walking light. difficult to pull out of otherwise.
