A $2,400 study by Danville-based Solex Architecture estimates that renovating the armory would cost $1.9 million. A previous estimate by another architect, working with the Harris Memorial Armory group, placed the project at $2.1 million.

If an aquatics center (with six-lane, 25-ft. long pool) were added to the armory, the construction price would be $6.7 million, according to Solex. An Olympic-size pool would raise the estimated price to $13.3 million.
