Panther Island Stormwater Canal Progress

When driving North on Main Street, you can see the Encore Panther Island multi-family apartment complex going up. The first section of the Panther Island canal system, is being built in conjunction with Encore Panther Island. In addition to the canal’s stormwater relief function, the canals will provide a continuous public boardwalk along the water’s edge giving the community a place to live, work, dine, shop and play.

The photos show construction progress from the end of August 2020 to the end of Sept 2020. A large portion of the canal floor has been poured and the canal walls are now ready to be formed up, with the wall pours expected to happen in the coming weeks. The canal is expected to be completed by end of year.
