Construction Progress

digging begins at mary free bed

The construction crews are on-site. The asphalt is removed from the former Saint Mary’s and a portion of the Schnitz parking lots. The land is now being prepared for the new building foundation and structure.

What’s that big hole in the former Schnitz parking lot? It’s a stormwater detention system, an underground system that collects rain and run-off water before discharging into the city's drainage system. The Mary Free Bed detention tank is located along Wealthy Street in the south end of the parking lot.

Framing is also set in place for the north end of the building.
