The drawings below (provided by Opsis Architects) were completed at the end of the “Design Development” phase in early September. During “design development”, design details from the initial schematic design phase are refined and cost estimates are updated. The creation of construction drawings follow this phase; they are scheduled to be complete in late January.

Actual construction is scheduled to begin in mid-February, however, office and venue relocations will begin in December. Project completion is June 2019.
