Summer days mixed blessing

September 16th, 2008 by Ken

These warm late summer days are a mixed blessing for residents of downtown Olympia, particularly seniors living in the Boardwalk Apartments.

Pile driving has been going on during daylight hours for two weeks now on the new construction at the site of the old Yardbirds.   The sounds of the hammers echo off the sides of the buildings and make it impossible to talk.  So all outside activities have almost ceased.

There’s no good news.  Pile driving is expected to continue for at least three more weeks, as crews drive some 250 65 to 95-foot pilings into the ground to anchor the new commercial building going up next to the Phoenix Inn.
