  Riggers Loft Rehabilitation Project Contract Authorized by City Council
August 1, 2012

After weeks of contentious debate characterized by vehement objections by Bates and Booze and their gallery, the contract to rehabilitate the Riggers Loft quietly passed through the City Council on the consent calendar last night without a whimper of protest from anyone.

A contract not to exceed $3,008,566 was authorized with Alten Construction, Inc., which happened to also be the low bidder for the Security and Operations Center when it was to be located on Harbour Way. The Security and Operations Center will now be located in the Riggers Loft, along with some 20,000 square feet of leasable space. To see the agenda item in its entirety, click on the following: J-7.
