Time Tower project takes design award
The Rotary Time Tower project was recently given the Chris Cherches Award by the city of Wichita. The award recognizes a public project that embodies "aesthetic vision" for the city.
Cherches, now deceased, was a former Wichita city manager and an avid supporter of the arts.
The Time Tower was a public/private partnership, partially funded by the Rotary Club. It is located on the historic site that was once home to the original Coleman Company factory, and was completed in December, 2011.
"It's a nice honor and we're pleased," said Ben Mabry, project manager for PEC. "We're even more pleased that it's such an attractive addition to downtown Wichita."
