Current renovations photos

We're getting new lights.  The old lights sure were BIG!

It's a massive renovation.  Everything had to GO!

To build the new lobby at the front of the building, work had to be completed on the underground water pipes.

The front also had to be torn up to build the new lobby.

The inside of the building will have new paint!

The new colors will look so beautiful!
