MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The 15-million dollar restoration project transforming the old Marquette orphanage into affordable housing is on schedule.
Crews are now cleaning out the lowest level of the building. They’re also reconstructing the roof and they hope to have the roof complete by the end of October. Crews are also working on the exterior walls of the building.
“The exterior work is a complete restoration of the original masonry work and that's on-going, so that will be happening now and it will be taken up again in the spring,” said Barry Polzin, architect.
According to Polzin, the apartments are expected to be completed around late August 2017.
