Concept Construction Corporation has been selected as the Construction Manager for a significant addition to the Medical Campus and General Contractor for Mercy Hospital’s cardiac care operating room expansion project.
At roughly $20 million, 1091 Main is a historic, adaptive reuse project by Ellicott Development located at the northeast corner of St. Paul and Main Street directly south of the former Our Lady Lourdes church. It offers a modern exterior with a range of materials selected to communicate an aesthetic connection to the adjacent historic church. At six stories in height, 1091 Main will include approximately 167,000 sq.ft. of retail and office space and include one level of underground parking for 50 vehicles. Ample additional parking will be available at the rear of the property.
The new building will internally connect with the former Our Lady Lourdes church by way of a connecting two-story winter garden. The historic Our Lady Lourdes church will undergo an adaptive restoration in conjunction with the development of 1091 Main. The former church will be transformed into a vibrant mix of retail, restaurant, commercial office and residential uses. Two additional floors will be constructed within the open cathedral nave producing approximately 14,000 sq.ft. over three floors.
