Now that this sum­mer’s mas­sive con­crete pours are over, res­i­dents can ex­pect to see build­ings start to spring up at the his­toric Testa’s site.

Work­ers are now pour­ing the col­umns for one build­ing and lay­ing block for an­other, said Cody Crow­ell, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of con­struc­tion for the Fris­bie Group, which is de­vel­op­ing the site on Royal Poin­ciana Way.

“Our goal now is to make as much progress as we can be­fore the sea­son so when peo­ple come back they will start to see (three of the six) build­ings ma­ture,” he said last week.

The shell of the build­ings will be con­structed on the Royal Poin­ciana Way side and then on Sun­set Av­enue. That should be com­plete by the end of the year, he has said. Next year the fo­cus will shift to­ward the fin­ish­ing work.

“Ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing is go­ing well and we are very ex­cited to be com­ing up out
