A quick update on the remodel

from General Manager Anya Firszt:
In January we announced that we would be remodeling Willy East to improve functionality and give Owners a better overall shopping experience. 

Owners then approved up to $2 million to be spent on the remodel of Willy East. Since that time we've found structural deficiency that requires reinforcement, identified deferred maintenance "issues" (projects), received great suggestions from Owners and staff, and added the significant expense of LEED certification, all bringing the total much higher to $4 million.
