Earthmoving and construction works commenced today at Concordia, as decades-old plans for the development of Atlantium’s Caput Mundi, or Global Capital, are at last realised.

Moving quickly after its Primus (January) establishment of the Empire’s 0.76 square kilometre Province of Aurora, the Imperial Administration recently authorised today’s clearing and leveling of a several hundred square metre section of Capital Hill on the eastern edge of Founders’ Square. The site, which is adjacent to the Scott Building, is to serve as the location of a visitor information and accommodation centre, an ablutions block and an equipment storage facility.
Phase Two of the Imperial Capital Development Programme is expected to commence during 10528 (2009), and will involve construction of the Imperial Throne Hall and several commemorative monuments.
