Downtown Project Updates
The Pilot Point Municipal Development District, in conjunction with Eikon Consulting Group architecture firm and Tegrity Contractors, is excited to breathe new life into two historic spaces in our historic downtown, as well as adding additional parking to assist with events and regular traffic in downtown Pilot Point.
There are three pieces encompassing this project to bring needed renovated spaces into our downtown: a 54-space parking lot (located next to City Hall), the Historic Ice House (located at 123 E Main) and Central Hall (formerly the Central Christian Church, located at 201 E Liberty Street). Construction began on these projects in early 2022 and they are slated to be complete in 2023.
Historic Ice House
The Historic Ice House (located at 123 E Main) was donated to the City of Pilot Point following its use as an ice distribution center in the 1930s. It had been used for storage for several years. The MDD, in cooperation with the City of Pilot Point, is renovating it for use in downtown events. It will contain public restrooms, a small vendor space, additional parking, and exterior booth spaces for use during the annual Pilot Point Main Street Farmers Market.
Central Christian Church
The Central Christian Church (located at 201 E Liberty) was donated to the Pilot Point Economic Development Corporation (now the Pilot Point MDD) after operating as a church since the early 20th century. It will become a vibrant space for live entertainment, as well as a rental facility for private events and weddings.
