They Might Just Pull this Off

If the attorneys get all the details worked into the documents, Vincennes will get a big Christmas present this week. The plans are to officially close on the sale of the two large former Vincennes Community School buildings along Sixth Street. When the school board announced the proposed sale of the exhausted and empty buildings not too many people expected more than bids for reclamation of materials, but a complete useful reuse of the property - no way.
Local developer Andy Myszak has completed other such projects in other communities and now it looks even more sure that completion of the Vincennes project into senior apartments and green space will happen.
Official congratulations will flow when the first residents move into the building and when Adams Coliseum is remodeled, but for now at big "At A Boy Andy" should do it. Oh. And Merry Christmas Vincennes. This project will be a gift we remember for a long time.
