(Table View of Images)

In November, 2013 work on Southport Land's project at 610-630 Court Street was temporarily suspended while the construction crew helped to save a historic house in Martinez, California that was slated to be demolished unless someone moved it.  The 1880's‑era house was disassembled into approximately 17 pieces and moved to a new lot.  Although not a Southport Land project, it is depicted here to show what the crew was doing during their absence from the 610-630 Court Street projects.
