Curious as to how construction progress is going at the new CVS Pharmacy being constructed on Superior Street in East Duluth. We'll give you a little update right now then!
Construction has been a long one coming for this project. Originally it was suppose to be the first location to open in Duluth and was scheduled to open last year. Unfortunately due to set backs with remaining tenants in the former portion of the Plaza strip center that remained on the site construction could not begin as soon as originally planned. With that set back the Grand Avenue location was able to move forward with construction and it soon became the first location to open in Duluth closely following the first location to open in the Twin Ports in Superior.
With the last of tenants moving out earlier this year from the Plaza Center retail building construction was able to begin in late winter. Quickly after we soon began to see cinder block walls starting to go up in late May, roofing in June, and now we are beginning to see a finished building. The original opening date of August 31st however has been pushed back now to early October.
We're actually pretty curious to the set up of this building compared to most CVS Pharmacy new construction projects. The building is situated almost directly centered when it comes to the site orientation. The entrance is located on the side fronting Walgreens (how convenient) along with a good amount of parking. Parking also stretches alongside the building running against Superior Street and there also appears to be some parking in the back near the drive thru.
So there is our little update for you on the new CVS Pharmacy opening in East Duluth.
Oh. Below are also some visual confirmations of what we just described above because after all you probably want to see the progress. Enjoy.
