Old public works building demolished, kicking off expansion project
A section of the Woodbury Public Works building was demolished Wednesday, July 11, as part of the city’s Public Works Expansion Project.
The building at 2301 Tower Drive was removed to make way for a new 25,000-square-foot building and an 18,800-square-foot unheated building where city vehicles and maintenance equipment will be stored.
Immediately after the demolition, Mayor Mary Giuliani Stephens and other city officials held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new facility.
Constructed in 1967, 2301 Tower Drive originally served as city hall. It was since remodeled three times.
The 2300 Tower Drive public works building across the street will also be remodeled as part of the same project, and about 53,000 square feet will be added to the existing structure.
The project cost is estimated at $23.2 million. The city expects it to be completed in 2019.
