Republic Square Deck is Open!

We’re pleased to announce that the Republic Square Auction Oaks Phase 1b project is substantially complete and we’ve removed the construction fence.  Still left to do are some touch-up work, installation of the metal tree grate (coming in mid-February) and allowing the sod to root in.  We will be putting out tables and chairs soon and the Farmer’s Market is planning on using the deck on Saturday.

We also learned that the Austin Parks Foundation as well as TBG Partners, Inc. (our landscape Architects who designed Phases 1a and 1b) were awarded the 2009 Community Forestry Award for “Aboricultural Project: Republic Square Tree Preservation Project”.  We were nominated by Bartlett Tree Experts, who did all of the root zone work for the three Auction Oaks.  We’re thrilled to have received this award.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
