The new 6,650-square-foot building expected to house three tenants, including Chipotle and Noodles & Company, in Cottage Grove’s Gateway North retail district is about halfway complete.

Duane Deppa, field supervisor for the project, confirmed Monday that work on the new building is on schedule. Following the demolition of the vacant Hollywood Video in June, crews from Fendler Patterson Construction finalized plans before beginning rebuilding work about two weeks ago.

On Monday, Deppa said the shell of the structure is nearly finished, with “a lot of cosmetic stuff on the outside” yet to be completed. Dave Wosika, the project’s superintendent, said construction should be complete by early October.

Noodles & Company is expected to occupy 2,697 square feet on the north end of the building, with a 493-square-foot patio. Chipotle is planned to occupy 2,366 square feet on the south end of the building with a 600-square-foot patio. A third tenant has yet to be secured.
