PCRI Joins Alberta Main Street for Improvements

January 11, 2012 · by Travis Phillips · Uncategorized

PCRI and Colas Construction recently finished exterior improvements at the Maggie Gibson Plaza, located on the corner of NE Alberta Street and NE 17th Avenue.

The most visible improvement is the building’s new paint job along Alberta Street (don’t worry, we kept the Cycling Center mural!). As part of the Alberta Main Street Façade Improvement Program, which provided a portion of the upgrade funding, we incorporated some other meaningful improvements too.  Those improvements included new energy-efficient lighting—now controlled by a more reliable and efficient light sensor—and a new, more prominent sign above the center windows of the building.

One of PCRI’s residential/commercial properties, Maggie Gibson provides affordable housing to several households and also contains neighborhood businesses, including Community Cycling Center (whose Holiday Bike Drive provided bicycles to several PCRI kids in December 2011.  Check out the oh-so-cute photos HERE), Shape It Up Hair Salon, and Mimosa “Paint Your Own Pottery” Studios.
