Lawmakers are weighing a decision about the future of Docking State Office Building. Here's what to know.


Lawmakers are weighing their options on the long-awaited renovation of the Docking State Office Building downtown, with many leaning towards a shorter, six-floor facility using some but not all of the current floorplan.

Earlier this year, legislators finally approved $120 million in bond sales be used to fund an overhaul of the Docking building, which has been an object of consternation in the wake of failed efforts to demolish the 62-year-old complex.

Now, the question becomes what the project will look like.

Current proposals would involve either a renovation of the entire building or a separate plan to reduce its size to three floors, with three brand new floors added on top of the structure.

The second plan would be about $15 million cheaper overall, although it would limit the amount of space available and is estimated to be completed in 2025, a year later than merely renovating the existing structure.
