The group purchased the building from Florence Baptist Church, which relocated to a new facility on Mt. Zion Road, for $1.64 million in June 2009. Renovation began in April of last year and costs were estimated at $6.5 million, according to documents submitted to the Boone County Building Department.
"The work has included a full renovation of the interiors including extensive structural work needed to adapt the entire building for our use," Banks said. "We are also doing a complete upgrade of the interior, including all new HVAC, electrical and plumbing, and new interior finishes."
