Albert Lea’s Jacobson Building to undergo renovations

(ABC 6 News) – The front of the Jacobson Building in Albert Lea will have repairs made this year.

"The City of Albert Lea will repair the façade this year with the help of a grant from the Minnesota Historical Society, which will provide half of the repair costs, up to $276,500. The Albert Lea City Council voted Feb. 14 to accept the low bid of $301,500 from Advanced Masonry Restoration of St. Paul, Minn., for the project."

“Restoring the integrity of this prominent building will not only eliminate a public safety hazard but will also support the city’s downtown revitalization efforts,” said Megan Boeck, city planner for Albert Lea.
