REJUVENATION AWAITS REMODEL

A crew from Ozark Crane works on the interior of the Olivia Apartments on Thursday ahead of an anticipated remodel of the historic Joplin building. The five-story structure, which was completed in 1906, was damaged by a fire in December 2020. With some financial help from the city of Joplin, a local development company plans to remodel and refurbish what was described as a luxury apartment building at Fourth Street and Moffet Avenue.GLOBE | ROGER NOMER
