Here are three views of the work now in progress at the site of the Marriott Hotel in the City of Coatesville. The truck is moving earth from the Marriot Hotel site to the site of the Brandywine River Walk in Coatesville on the former Carlson Steel Company. The trucks will be moving the earth from the Marriot Hotel site to the Brandywine Riverwalk site for about two weeks. The trucks come down and back First Avenue about every 5 minutes. I couldn't get in a good position for a photo of the Brandywine Riverwalk Site.
"Governor Rendell Breaks Ground on $36 Million Hotel, Office Tower; Says Coatesville's Revitalization Underway"
COATESVILLE, Pa., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Coatesville's ongoing revitalization will be strengthened by the construction of a new hotel and office tower, Governor Edward G. Rendell said today while helping to break ground for the $36 million project.
At Saturday’s ceremony Rendell mentioned that there was originally $4.5 Million in grants. It's now $3.5 Million. So we kind of owe you a million, Ha, Ha.
I think this was a dig at Coatesville City Manager Harry Walker for letting about $1 Million in grants expire. Harry looked a little embarrassed at the time.
As far as I could tell the only Councilperson elect invited was Jarrell Brazzle.
