Building 203: Project Background
America’s Central Port is in the early design phase of improvements to Building 203, formerly a U.S. Army locomotive repair shop for the Charles Melvin Price Support Center. In July 2018 the Port was awarded a grant from the Economic Development Administration to bring Building 203 up to a stable and watertight condition, preventing further decay and allowing the Port to market the building to potential manufacturing tenants.
The Lawrence Group and Horner & Shifrin have been engaged to design Phase I improvements to the building. Construction, which started in the Summer of 2019, consists of $1.42 million in improvements, including selective demolition, structural repairs, roof replacement, and miscellaneous site improvements. Phase II costs and schedule will be determined based on the needs of the future building tenant.
