Seth Chandlee, Chief Executive Officer at Chandlee Holdings, LLC, stated on January 31, 2017 that the contract was secured and design was beginning immediately.
Senior Project Manager, Carey Hughes, is running this project. Project Administrator, Lindsey Kitchens, stated on February 25 that the project is currently in permitting with demolition and framing underway.
