LeChase helps kick off expansion at The Strong

By July 13, 2018October 26th, 2018Project Highlights, Rochester, N.Y.

LeChase was on hand July 12 to help The Strong National Museum of Play celebrate the groundbreaking for a new parking garage – the first step in the museum’s planned expansion.

LeChase is CM-at-Risk for the 331,200-SF garage, as well a 100,000-SF museum expansion that will follow. When completed in the fall of 2019, the garage will provide space for more than 1,000 cars – significantly increasing parking capacity.

The museum expansion will start next summer, with completion scheduled for summer 2020.  Covering three stories and a basement level, the addition will increase exhibit space by more than 50%, and also provide an open lobby, storage for collections and space for offices, a gift shop, café and restrooms.
