NEW MUNICIPAL COMPLEX

Gainesville's new Municipal Complex, comprised of
the new Municipal (City Hall) Building and Gainesville
Public Library, contains four square city blocks. The
floors are a combination of carpet, vinyl asbestos and
terrazzo. The exteriors are decorative, special-cut lime-
stone block. There are no supporting walls in the inter-
ior, construction being based on an outside shell- support
principle.
Funds for the construction of these two buildings
were obtained through a General Obligation Bond Issue,
date of issuance May, 1964. The Municipal Building,
four stories and basement, and containing 50,649 square
feet, was built at a cost of $1,277,540.99, and the
Library Building, two stories and basement, containing
17,170 square feet, was built at a cost of $483,352.08.
