Open house for remodeled City of Mesa Municipal Building
An open house to celebrate renovations to the Mesa Municipal Building at 55 N. Center will be held Wednesday Dec. 6 from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Mesa City Manager Chris Brady will be on hand for an official ribbon cutting at 10 a.m.  Refreshments and entertainment will also be provided, along with tours of the building.
Beginning in Sept. 2005, a massive remodeling project was started on the building. The nearly completed renovation includes construction of  public restrooms on the first floor, new ADA entrance ramps at the East and West sides of the building, installation of a fire sprinkler system, a complete upgrade of the electrical service equipment, and improvements to the building’s security system.  One major upgrade involved the “tie-in” of the new chilled water line from the Mesa Arts Center.  This allows the Municipal Building to take advantage of this efficient use of cooling during the summer months.
The project, costing an estimated $2.9 million, was completed in four phases, allowing personnel to be shifted during each phase to maintain full customer service.  Building Safety Director Terry Williams said, “We are excited to be nearly completed with this renovation of our working environment.  Both our customers and our employees will now realize the benefit from the safety, accessibility, and aesthetic  improvements.”
Construction on the City of Mesa Municipal Building started in 1961. At that time, the first floor and basement of the South Wing was built.  In 1964, two-thirds of the first floor and basement of the North Wing was added.  The entire second floor and remaining one-third of the North Wing was completed in 1971, bringing the total square footage to 37,436.
