Renovation of historic St Patrick’s Cathedral in full swing – Newspaper

KARACHI: With the renovation work going on at the historic St Patrick’s Cathedral, you see poles, steel bars, marble slabs, stone and other construction material outside the cathedral and monument. A banner in a corner says: ‘Work in progress. No entry. Sorry for the inconvenience’.

There is a group of people, the men in fine suits and women in pretty nylon dresses, waiting under a tree near the monument. There is also a white car with rolled up dark windows parked nearby with its engine running, probably for the AC.

“They are a wedding party,” explains Reverend Father Saleh Diego, the parish rector and also the vicar general for Karachi as he shows you around the cathedral grounds.

The renovation and repairs are being carried out by the Sindh Heritage Department.

Civic Center’s historic Freede Little Theatre to get full remodel

“It’s an advanced screening like they have at Frontier City,” said John Semtner, architect and principal with FSB. “They can do 2,000 people an hour with no more waving a wand on everyone who walks through the door.”

Long-awaited revamp

The multi-year renovation of the Civic Center — which started in December 1998 and was finished in September 2001 — was part of the original MAPs and originally was supposed to include the Freede Little Theatre. It wasn’t included on future MAPS ballots, and no funding became available before the 2017 bond.

“The MAPS 1 budget for the project in total ran over, so that particular scope of the project had to be cut, which was really disheartening, I think, to all back then,” Gray said. “So, it’s finally happening, which we’re super proud of because we always wanted to make that happen just to honor … the historical nature
