The Fort Harrison Reuse Authority is preparing to break ground on a massive infrastructure project that will lay the groundwork for the master-planned Lawrence Village at the Fort, the final phase of a decade-long redevelopment of Fort Benjamin Harrison. The $9-million project calls for new streets, landscaping, utilities, lighting, three parks, signage, rain gardens, raised median planters and entrance columns. Over 350 trees will be planted along streets featuring bike lanes, sidewalks and on-street parking. The roughly 90-acre Lawrence Village at the Fort calls for a new downtown with shops, offices and public plazas mixed among condos, townhouses and apartments. The area to be developed is bounded by Post and Lee roads and 59th and 56th streets. The group had originally hoped to start the work in August 2007. A groundbreaking now is scheduled for May 5.
