Waterworks restoration endorsed

SPECIAL OFFER FOR HISTORIC CITY NEWS READERS


Restoration of the North City Waterworks Building to its original 1883 style as the city’s first train depot was endorsed by the City Commission last night following a report by Architect Dave Mancino.

Mancino designed a restoration as a community hall complete with a catering kitchen. The new design could seat 150 with potential revenue-producing uses such as wedding receptions.

St. Augustine’s Chief Operations Officer John Regan suggested that the estimated $1.2 to $1.8 million project could find support in the transportation stimulus program and through the St. Augustine 450 Federal Commission.
