One more phase complete. Now, onto the next step in the renovation goal.
The Marietta Armory finished phase two. The deadline was met at 6:30 Friday evening and the grants were filed.
But still, Marietta Director of Development, Andy Coleman says he put together a punch list of some of the minor things that need to be fixed, like a dent in the door and the construction worker clean up. Otherwise, the committee is ready to move on to the next phase.
Phase two knocks out a long list of structural features of the building including, a new parking lot, windows, doors, new front steps and a new roof.
Coleman says this is a positive step in renovation because now the public can see an appealing building downtown.
"We are very happy the building is secure, and that it's, that the roof isn't leaking any longer, the doors and windows aren't leaking, the front steps have been replaced. The building has been cleaned up and it does look great. We are very happy the building is not going to be in the state of deterioration," said Coleman.
Talks for the third phase of the armory project are underway.
