Work has recently begun on the beautification of the Ceres Street corridor, which will continue to improve the city’s appeal to (residents and) tourists and make it a little less rugged in the alleyway that accesses the decks. As I’ve written before – Poco’s deck will no longer be in its current spot, however it’s actually going to be moved against the building and is said to feature TWO stories, an upper level and a lower level….stay tuned, should be a cool improvement (though no longer on the water).
The notorious dumpster will be moved, drainage in the area improved, and new walkways will adorn the rowhouses on Ceres Street. I’ll post progress shots as the project continues through the rest of the year. While the beloved decks will be changing, it should only continue to enhance the desirability of the destination. I’ve also heard that there will be a walkway along the exterior of the decks….we’ll soon find out!
The Portsmouth Herald opined on the project on September 28th, which can be read HERE.
