Posted April 09, 2018 09:21:04 The GVA is a building that is in the midst of a massive renovation project that will bring in $4.4 billion in new funds to the city, according to a city report released Thursday.
The renovation will include renovating and replacing some of the exterior windows, adding an outdoor bar, adding a walk-in laundry, replacing the water mains and improving the electrical system.
The project will also include a $2.7 million restoration of the front of the building and add more landscaping, said Mark Voss, the city’s senior planning manager.
The city has been working to bring in money for the Gva renovation project for about a year and a half.
The $4 billion project includes renovating the Gvas and renovating two existing buildings at the former Gvas site.
The former Gva site, which is owned by the city and was home to the GVDS, the GVS and the GVD, was demolished in the mid-1990s.
The GVds and GVS are now under a different ownership.
The current owner, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, bought the Gvd site in 2010 for $7.6 million and is currently renovating it as part of the GVEA renovation project.
The remaining portions of the former site are being redeveloped, Voss said.
“The city has the resources to put this together and it’s going to take years,” he said.
Voss added that the city is still working to complete the entire project, including installing exterior and interior walls, adding exterior landscaping and adding exterior lighting.
He said the city will need to spend $2 million on the project to complete its work.
The plan calls for the renovations to be completed by 2021 and is expected to be complete by 2022.
The city estimated the cost of the project will cost about $4 million per building.
