Repair work to the building facade, parking deck planters, and sidewalk pavers begins October 17 and continues through early December. During this time, parking may be limited, portions of the sidewalk on the east side of the building will be closed, and patrons may experience occasional construction noise. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding.

COVID 19 Guidelines

Updated February 28, 2022
