Main Street Morgantown and former Morgantown Mayor Frank Scafella are presenting Renaissance Morgantown – Riverfront Development in Photographs. This exhibit will include selections of photographs that document the $350 million transformation of Morgantown’s waterfront from an abandoned industrial zone to a first class recreational and business zone during the period from 1998 through 2002.
Glenmark Holding LLC is proud to have played a role in the renewal of this former industrial warehouse hub. Glenmark targeted a block of this area and transformed it into professional offices and retail offerings. Oliverio’s Restaurant and the original MedExpress Urgent Care facility are arguably two of the best known renovation projects that Glenmark Holding is responsible for in the Wharf District.
The exhibit may be viewed June 29 – July 1, 2012 at the Waterfront Place Hotel, July 20 – August 6, 2012 at the Arts Monongahela Gallery, and August 10 – October 1, 2012 at The Erickson Alumni Center at Statler Wilson Commons. Receptions will be held on June 29 and July 20 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
