St. Philip Neri installs steeple
FORT MILL—Construction is underway at St. Philip Neri parish. The steeple was added to the building on Nov. 28.
The master building plan started more than a decade ago with the construction of a multi-purpose and classroom buildings. The new structure will combine modern and traditional elements, and is designed by WKWW Architects in Charlotte.
Plans call for seating 1,200 people. Another element is a 3,500-square-foot basement with space for choir practice and additional classrooms. The cost is estimated at $6.5 million.
More than 1,800 households are listed as members in 2011.
A completion date is set for December 2012. Committee members say construction will begin once they select a contractor.
