Magic City Discovery is just one of 16 projects the DOD funded from the $620 million Defense Critical Infrastructure Program.

“Thank you to the community. It really has been a community partnership, and everyone has supported us and it’s really been amazing. That’s what gets things done. When people are caring and passionate and they just won’t quit,” said Wendy Keller, executive director.

Groundbreaking for the building on North Hill is planned for early October. Construction will be completed in 2021 with the opening scheduled for 2022.
