Crews are nearing completion on renovations to downtown Springfield’s historic Heer’s Building, which after close to 20 years of sitting vacant, is set to reopen this fall. KSMU’s Scott Harvey took at tour and has this report.
Current projects underway in downtown encompass over $50 million in investments. But many feel that revitalization will not be complete without a new and improved Heer’s Building. And at nine stories and 110,000 plus square feet, this once longtime department store plays a huge role in reshaping Center City.
