More project updates! Here’s the cool top on the kiosko at Plazuela Zaragoza! I love it! And see the nice spiral staircase going up to the top? I imagine Danzón on Thursdays will be restarted pretty soon, too.
There is a project to repave around the Plazuela Machado. Everyone was shocked that the city started this job last week, just when our winter tourist season is about to start! And given the slow progress at the other civic projects in Centro, I think most people expected this one to be very slow, too.
I know I showed you the Haas House that was donated to be the new Carnaval Museum. Work has been ongoing there for quite a while, and it seems to be getting somewhat closer to finished. I can’t believe all the changes they were able to get through INAH. The picture below shows a bunch of ducting, all very visible from the street.
This picture is the one that really gets me – some sort of plastic covered area. Not anywhere close to my understanding of how a facade is supposed to not be changed from the original in Centro Historico.
I forgot to take a picture of the paving at the Plaza de los Leones (Plazuela Hidalgo) but a bonus is a picture of some upgrading and painting going on at the Hotel Belmar!
