LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock City Council members received on update on plans for Citizens Tower on Thursday afternoon.

Architectural firm Perkins+Will provided the council with several renderings of the proposed project. Representatives say they met with staff members from departments within the city to come up with a plan with a focus on customer service.

The project has a construction budget of $48.7 million. City council members did question the cost of renovating the current parking garage for the tower. Mayor Dan Pope suggested that building a new garage could be more cost effective, but councilwoman Karen Gibson said the cost of tearing down the current structure must also be considered.

Council members suggested some changes still need be looked at.  A proposed date for people to start moving into the new tower is December of 2018, but a final schedule has not been confirmed.
