Millcraft Industries has a new partner — Turner Construction Co. — in the development of the $81 million The Gardens at Market Square development, Downtown.
The former partner was dck Worldwide, the Downtown-based construction company.
The split in developers was because “we could not come to mutually agreeable terms,” said Jennifer Valachovic, spokeswoman for Millcraft.
“This was a complicated deal, and we couldn't come to terms on the project,” said Laurie Bowers, dck spokeswoman. She said dck will not be moving into the Gardens as originally planned and will remain at its present location in One PPG Place.
Downtown-based Turner's role will be as a development partner and contractor, and will occupy 20,000 square feet in The Gardens, Valachovic said.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
