Construction of the Fireweed Business Center officially began this month as crews poured the concrete foundation. The first building at the site will be an 8-story office tower that offers tenants spacious accommodations at a prime midtown Anchorage location.
Last year, crews from Davis Constructors and Engineers prepared the site by putting in new sewer lines and placing underground heaters into the soil to allow for the major construction work to begin in April.
“It’s exciting to see all of the activity at the site and the footprint of the building take shape,” said Sophie Minich, president and CEO of CIRI. “We look forward to developing a project that all of us – our shareholders, employees and the community – can take pride in.”
CIRI is planning an office campus with up to three buildings at the Fireweed Business Center, located at the intersection of Fireweed Lane and the New Seward Highway. The first office tower is expected to be completed in early 2015. To learn more about the project, visit www.fireweedcenter.com.
