Work on the renovation of Jefferson Plaza (soon to be Allen Plaza) began this week as construction workers raised an Allen Commercial Group flag over the plaza. It replaces a worn-out state flag. Scotty's Brewhouse likely will move into the first floor of the building. And Allen Group eventually is expected to move its headquarters into the building. The $12-million renovation project also calls for 30 new condos and office space. That whole block is changing dramatically. There also are projects at the Broadbent Building
and the former Junior Achievement Building
. As for Allen Plaza, there's no word yet on whether the Thomas Jefferson profile sign facing Delaware Street will be replaced with the likeness of J. Greg Allen.
