Final piece of ambitious AnchorBank project going before city's design commission. (Capital Times, 4/21/2015)
The project has been in the works for years, with Urban Land Interests planning major renovations and an expansion to the existing AnchorBank office building at 25 W. Main St. As the project gained approval, ULI expanded the scope to include the bank’s 50-year-old parking garage, located across South Carroll Street. 
The plans now include tearing down that parking garage, constructing a 548-stall underground parking ramp beneath South Carroll Street and building a mixed-use apartment building where the garage once stood.

As these photos from last summer show, the project was approved and quickly moved forward.
