Erie Events’ bayfront market house now expected to cost up to $12 million

Erie Events continues to move forward with plans for a year-round, multimillion-dollar indoor market house on the city’s west bayfront.

But the organization now believes the facility’s price tag has gone up significantly — and it will be seeking additional financing for the project.

Gus Pine, Erie Events’ executive director, said that based on new construction cost estimates and other data, the facility is expected to cost between $10 million and $12 million.
