As of the end of July, the glass front has been gradually going into place on the face of the new Plaza Building, home to the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, and construction has started on the pedestrian bridge that will connect the Plaza to the Sparrow Professional Building. Construction started just over one year ago. Track the progress through The Christman Company’s webcam, and watch a timelapse from the very beginning!
