What is going into 323 Bay Street?  Is there a rendering?

I like the Art Deco look of thNest Living place.

That's a little more action than we've seen in the past few years. Hopefully the funds will start flowing and more projects will take place.

Metropolitan Park is also under construction.  I'll have to add some images of it a little later.

Heat and AC upgrade at the 5 Points Theatre!

I know it's a small project but very welcome to our staff and customers.


The ductwork was run from the kitchen area underneath the stage.


You can see that the current stage was built over the top of the original one.


Here is a duct trimmed out and painted.

Thanks.  So I guess their plan to open in Springfield at 6th & Main went up in smoke?

A VERY welcome addition!  I froze my rear end off at 'True Grit'... so much so that I came to '904' with two coats in tow, lol.
