On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, the final beam was signed and lifted into place at the 22-story Saint John’s On The Lake North Tower Expansion project, representing the highest point of the building.
Current and future residents, board members, project partners and Saint John’s On The Lake staff has the opportunity to sign the beam before it was lifted to the top of the building. The beam will be placed and remain exposed, even after the building is complete.
