Highland Phase 2

Construction continues on phase 2 at ACC Highland. Crews completed the removal of floor finishes in January and are now re-pouring concrete that was in disrepair. Work also continues on the new television studio and the music performance hall. Outside, lighting supports for the canopy are going up. Interior design consultants at Edwards Mulhausen also released new renderings of furniture, fixtures, and equipment showcasing design considerations for gathering spaces and the new culinary restaurant.
