ROCHESTER, Minn.- As the city and DMC, or Destination Medical Center, move forward with a major project, residents can look forward to a facelift for the downtown area.
At Monday night’s City Council Meeting, the council approved $1.7M to go toward services for design development, construction documents and bidding for the Heart of the City Phase 1 project.
This money will also give permission for the city to enter into an AIA (American Institute of Architect) agreement with the consultant company Coen + Partners. This agreement will make communication between the city and everyone involved easier.
This is not a levy funded project.
Bidding is set to begin in 2019 with construction predicted to begin around 2020.
