UTICA, N.Y. – Plans are moving ahead for the new Nexus Center, a sports complex that will be located next to the Adirondack Bank Center.
Mohawk Valley Garden President Rob Esche says the organization would like to sign a contract with a construction company by Thanksgiving.
"We're hoping that sometime the end of November, early December, that we're going to start moving around, then after the demo of the actual slabs and things of that nature and the pilings they start pounding in, I believe there's 536 of them. And then we go right through the winter," said Esche.
Sports tournaments will be held in the center, bringing people from outside the area to Utica for these events.
Esche says the center should be open before next winter.
