Christened Morris Park School upon its completion in 1939, this structure already boasted arched Tiger Oak doorways, doors, trim and accents. Lee Companies managed exhaustive upgrades in this elementary school renovation while maintaining the original architectural details and charm. The two-level, 36,500 sq. ft. brick building required new flooring throughout. The bathrooms were doubled or tripled in size and brought up to ADA standards. The school’s former stage was replaced by a state-of-the-art kitchen. Marker boards and other school furnishings were installed in each of the 19 oversized classrooms. The renovated facility can now easily accommodate the needs of the hundreds of students enrolled.
