The Prospect Park Alliance recently uploaded a few behind-the-fence shots of how construction is going at Lakeside. Among other things, the big project will result in a couple new skating rinks and involve the relandscaping of 26 acres. The cover for one of the rinks has almost been completely installed, and a lot of work has been done on the new lakeshore wall. Yesterday a press release went out saying that Chase is putting $1.6 million toward the facility being built adjacent to the skating rinks that will include a “Chase Cafe.” The entire project is costing $74 million and is 85 percent funded at this point; it’s supposed to be finished by December 2012 or January 2013.
