July 2023 Updates


The Duke Energy Convention Center is currently in schematic design for both the building renovations and the two-acre park and outdoor convention space at the former Millennium Hotel site. An exploratory study of the building’s electrical, plumbing, and roof is also underway. This will help determine the exact scope of repairs needed. Plans are advancing through an iterative process of design, value engineering, and cost refinement to arrive at a final design that is within the project budget. Currently, there is a request for proposal (RFP) to select a subcontractor for the building façade. Identifying a subcontractor now will allow that organization to be involved in the design process and ensure a high-quality and cost-effective final product.


The design of the new community center continues to advance, and a schematic design set will be complete in the next few weeks. Concept designs for Grant Park and the portion of Findlay Playground next to the community center are currently being developed. Future engagement sessions will be held seeking community input on these designs. If you would like receive project updates, please email FindlayRec@3CDC.org.

Framing is nearly complete in the building located at 210-214 W. 12th Street and mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough-ins are scheduled to begin on the fifth floor in the coming days.
