Workers broke ground on the $52 million Exchange Building in April. It’s supposed to be finished in the spring of 2019. The 15-story building will have parking, retail, office space and apartments. To keep the project on schedule, cold-weather days don’t happen very often.

“They just keep finding a way to keep things moving,” Wheeler said. “They heat spaces they need to. These guys have all been doing this for a long time, so they kind of understand the constraints we’re working within when it gets this cold.”

“But all in all, we’ve had a pretty good year as far as being able to push through the weather,” Garrity noted.
