THE $7.9 MILLION renovation of Pana Towers on South Locust Street in Pana continue. The eight-story building makeover – both inside and out – should take the rest of the year to complete.
The finances are a combination of public and private funds.
However, residents from lower floors of the building will be moving into the renovated apartments on the eighth floor this week (top photo). Work continues on the seventh floor where completion is expected shortly and it is also progressing on schedule on the sixth floor (bottom photo) where work is also underway.
The redevelopment was initiated by the Christian County Housing Authority. Christian County Integrated Housing Corp. will take over the day to day operation of the facility once completed.
The 72-unit complex will feature apartments on the first floor and the main entrance will be moved to the south end of the building. Laundry facilities will be on each floor of the building and it is wired for the Internet.
More details on the remodel will appear in future issues of the PN-P.
