CityWalk@Akard "Topping Off" Celebration

On Thursday, August 6, 2009, KEY Construction hosted a traditional "topping off" celebration at CityWalk@Akard!

Well over 100 laborers have worked on the project to bring much needed workforce and permanent supportive housing to Downtown Dallas! Many of them sat down with a crowd of our guests for a meal to mark the completion of the basics inside the adaptive reuse project.

Central Dallas Ministries and our landlord, Central Dallas Community Development Corporation, will move into new 3rd floor offices in late September or early October.

By the end of 2009 we expect the building to be fully leased up!

The project has been complicated, challenging and difficult. . .but, completely worth it!

It was great to sit down with the workers who've made it all possible.

The video below is very low-tech with little artistic value!

It is a simple attempt to capture roving images of the men who have worked so hard on the project.

Amazing what you can accomplish with a pirate captain at the helm and God's wind in your sails!

Congratulations, Larry, CDM, CDCC and all. It's been a long-time coming, with many uphill battles fought with courage and amazing persistence. Major kudos to all of you for all you do.
