I just want to keep you up on the situation with our office spaces in Jones Hall. The Civic Center will be going to City Council this week to ask for monies to rebuild the SPA and Symphony offices, and the rehearsal hall, music library, instrument storage, etc. If approved, I'm told the City will allow us to have the offices rebuilt by the contractor of our choice. We will want the contractor who originally built our offices 6 or 7 years ago. However, the rebuild will take between 10 and 12 weeks. That means we will not return to offices until, say, end of February, assuming some work will be accomplished in December.
We told Enron that we should return to Jones Hall by the end of this year; obviously that won't happen. Of course, we would want to remain in our present offices on the 37th floor of Three Allen Center until the end of February. But, is this possible? Do you have any idea what might happen to your space here, and whether we can remain? Shall we remain quiet, hoping nobody notices us? Let me know, please, if there is anything I can do to remain in these offices. Thanks
