The Cap Times toured the renovated Madison Municipal Building on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. on Monday.
The 1929 landmark building needed the renovation to provide a long-term solution for significant problems associated with its electrical, heating and cooling systems.
The MMB is home to city departments like planning, building inspection, traffic engineering, zoning, the Community Development Authority and the Community and Economic Development division. The departments were temporarily located in other spaces downtown during construction, but will move back in in September.
The renovation project is separate from the $186 million redevelopment of the two blocks behind the Municipal Building known as Judge Doyle Square. The two projects were linked in previous iterations.
