Getting a nice renovation.

After some delays, First Presbyterian Church is set to officially begin new construction within the Avanti Building.

The 84,000-square-foot, six-story building at 810 S. Cincinnati Ave. will be ready for tenants sometime in the summer, said Steve Cadwell, director of operations for the church.

At this point, the downtown office building is just a shell.

“The demolition work is complete, so the interior is almost nonexistent,” Cadwell said. “It’s just floors and outside walls.”

The church purchased the vacant building in February 2013 for $2.1 million from Kanbar Properties.

An additional $6 million is being spent on the renovation, Cadwell said. Nearly everything except the exterior walls will be replaced, including new windows and lighting, new electrical systems, a new roof and new heating and air.

Though future tenants will be able to select their own designs and build their spaces, Tulsa-based architectural firm Cyntergy AEC is designing open offices, with large, open spaces meant for tenants taking up entire floors. g?oh=438a642ccf52ece06c38b95d0c12f001&oe=54F7925B&__gda__=1425222124_a41828891b268ece085ab2ef7d5b166 3
