The old legislature building has now been gutted to make room for a number of GovGuam offices that will soon occupy it.

The old Legislature building at 155 Hessler Street hasn’t been used since Guam lawmakers moved into the refurbished Guam Congress Building three years ago.

The building has now been gutted to make room for a number of GovGuam offices that will soon occupy it.

Bureau of Budget and Management Research Director Lester Carlson says the Department of Labor’s job center, the Department of Integrated Services for Individuals with Disabilities, and the Veterans Affairs Office are among the agencies scheduled to move in once the renovation work is done.

Carlson said that it might be ready for occupancy sometime in the first quarter of next year.

The building is being leased and renovated with a $2.5 million Interior Department grant that was applied for and approved under the former Calvo administration.
