Lawrence Brothers Rebuild Illinois Grant Application

The City of Sterling is seeking Rebuild Illinois Shovel Ready Sites grant funding for Environmental Site Assessment work, Architectural Planning and Design, Roof Replacement, Building Improvements, and other Site Preparation and Improvements to prepare the former Lawrence Brothers site for redevelopment. These initial site improvements would substantially mitigate the unknown issues that would deter developers and potential tenants from being interested in the building. Sealing the building perimeter and making the building more watertight to prevent further deterioration is paramount in securing its future. The improvements included in this application would accomplish major recommendations within the study that is currently being completed by Gary W. Anderson Architects for the City of Sterling.
