La Crosse Center closer to renovations

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse Center is one step closer to being renovated.

A La Crosse Center subcommittee has chosen two potential architecture firms out of a pool of eight possible candidates.

The partnering firms are expected to spend much of 2017 on planning and gathering community input.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2018 and finish the following year.

"The whole project, you know, is something that's going to have an impact in the downtown that could be 25, 30years at least, in the making here. So it's going to be very exciting. We really want to brand it, we want to have it as something that's a signature for the m=community, and it's going to be an exciting time here in the next 2 or 3 years for the center and the city,” said La Crosse Center Director Art Fahey.

A final decision on which architecture firm will receive the contract will be made by the La Crosse Common Council in February.
