Construction on the center is moving along on schedule with nearly all of the new mechanical systems roughed in. Outside new curbs and sidewalks are being installed around the building along with two separate rainwater retention cisterns and rain gardens all designed to reuse and reduce rainwater runoff. On the inside of the center the new elevator shaft is taking shape near the north entrance. All the new interior door frames are now onsite and being installed. The front clearstory has elevated the south interior entrance by nearly 18 feet and created a bright and welcoming space.
