Work Underway on Old Pierce School

May 21, 2015

Renters in the Quad Cities are eager for an old school to be renovated into apartments. A couple of developers are working together on the project -- the old Pierce school in the Village of East Davenport.

All the asbestos and lead paint abatement has been completed. A crew is now demolishing parts of the building that have no historical significance. It's also removing old infrastructure, such as boilers. The school was built in 1899.

On today's WVIK News Focus, Michelle O'Neill spends a few minutes with one of the prinicpal developers, Tim Baldwin.
