"The $92 million renovations at the IRS compound in Andover will include a reflecting pool, an art gallery, indoor gardens, a 7,000-square-foot cafeteria and an amphitheater, but it remains unclear what new permanent jobs, if any, will come to the center.
The Herald reported last month that the IRS received $80.5 million in stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for “green upgrades” to the 400,000-square-foot complex.
The IRS already had $11.4 million on hand for the work. During a tour of the 50-year-old federal complex Thursday, the architect called the project “visionary” and said the building “will be relevant 50 years from now.”
