Rehabbers' Club Offers Peeks Inside the Dorsa and Laurel Projects

The Rehabbers' Club meets Saturday morning for a free tour of two of Pyramid's latest downtown projects.

When: Saturday, March 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: Meet at Breve Espresso, 417 North 10th Street
Who: Everyone
Contact: Claralyn Bollinger 314-604-1570

The tour will assemble at Breve Espresso and then at 9:30 a.m. will depart to the first stop, the Dorsa Lofts, located at 1007-1015 Washington Avenue. Paul Hohmann, project architect, will lead the tour. Paul will show the entrance, parts of the original Dorsa Dress Company and Fashion Salon, as well as a loft/condo display (one of 52) and an under-construction penthouse unit (one of 8).

From there, the tour moves east to 625 Washington Avenue to visit The Laurel, presently being developed in the old Stix, Baer & Fuller department store. Here Paul will give people a behind-the-scenes look at this huge mixed-use development that will encompass 72 condos, a mid-size hotel, apartments and first-floor retail.

An acquaintance and I were talking about the city and he mentioned that he heard that Pyramid is declaring bankruptcy? Anyone hear this bit of hearsay?
