Rudy’s Hall continues to battle the weather
Ready for spring yet?
This relentless winter weather seems to have everyone down, including the poor workers at Rudy’s Hall.
Despite multiple snow storms, this crew managed to build an elevator and rear entrance lobby at the historic building that will house JoBoy’s brewery and restaurant.
It’s been tough work, but the owners remain hopeful that a spring opening is achievable.
“The contractors are moving along, despite these frigid temps,” said Lisa Terry, co-owner of the building. “We so appreciate their hard work during this trying winter. Who would have ever anticipated when we broke ground in October that we would be confronted with such unbearable temperatures and continuous snowfalls?”
The weather has stopped some of the contractors, like masons and roofers, from completing exterior work. However, work inside is moving at a good pace.
“With the setback this winter, we are now anticipating spring completion,” she added.
Last week, before the most recent wave of snow and ice hit town, part of East Main Street was reduced to one lane of traffic while workers repaired the water main that connects the building to the public sewer line.
When work is finally completed, Lititz’s largest building, which was at one time a community center of sorts, will be full from top to bottom for the first time in many years. JoBoy’s will occupy the first and second floors in addition to one of the basement boutiques, which will be used for office space and some take-out and restaurant memorabilia sales.
Most of the third floor will be used by Moravian Manor, and the third floor rear office suite will be used by Joshua Bodene & Nathan Carter, attorneys at law.
Mary Brinkley, owner of Next Door Home Decor and More, will be occupying the other basement boutique.
Never. Lose. Hope.
