Center in the Square rooftop

Construction workers face a December 31st deadline to complete building renovations at Center in the Square, and Center officials say they’ll get it done. The deadline is a firm one because millions of dollars in tax credits require the work to be completed this year. The center is set to reopen after the $27 million renovation next May. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
