Workers pull floor trusses from a lift truck that will be used to build up the floor to a standard height on the second level while masons install the original bricks on the outside of the building.
Jacques Klempf points out some details in the construction on the second floor of the Cowford Chophouse Downtown at 101 E. Bay St. Klempf said so much work has been done to the property that it will never have to be upgraded again. Danis Construction is the contractor and Klempf expects to take occupancy July 1. His daughter, Alexandria, is leading the redevelopment of the historic Bostwick Building into the restaurant.
Construction workers load in trusses for building up the second floor, install electrical wiring and cut insulation. The mezzanine opening overlooks the bar area on the ground floor. The Cowford Chophouse will seat about 300 customers on the first and second floors and on the rooftop bar.
The second floor has an expansive view of the Downtown skyline. Pictured are Jacques Klempf and his daughter, Alexandria.
