The historic Railroad Fruit Auction & Sales Terminal within the Strip District is being renovated into a 156,000 square foot new market house and mixed-use development. McCaffery, the client, has a vision to restore the energy and vitality of this complex to make it a people-centric destination once again. Partnering with PJ Dick, the general contractor, and McCaffery, Clista Electric will help make the vision a reality.
There are expectations the Strip District Produce Terminal will become a regional destination due to having something for everyone. The new location will have creative arts, dining (including outdoor seating), cocktail bars, shopping and more.
When working in a historic building, challenges are part of the excitement. Old tunnels were found while under Smallman Street while excavating. This was unexpected, but it sure does make one wonder what these tunnels were once used for!
Clista Electric will have installed a complete fire alarm system, CCTV network including inside and outside cameras upon project completion. In addition, we are adding all new site lighting on Spruce Way and Smallman St from 16th to 21st Street. Finally, the traffic light conduit infrastructure on 21st street has been newly added. All lighting decisions are to support the goal of meeting LEED Silver standards.
We can’t wait to see this project completed! Coming Soon in 2020.
