PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - There is new information on the proposed redevelopment of the cotton gin buildings in downtown Prattville.

Previously, there was an agreement in place for the renovations of the cotton gin buildings to move forward.

LEDIC Realty in Montgomery says it met with the U.S. Corps of Engineers late last week in Mobile.

The corps has requested additional information on whether an archaeological study is needed before renovations begin.

Previously, developers said the study was not necessary.

LEDIC plans to build a levee on the north end of the pond to prevent future flooding of the vacant buildings.

LEDIC believes the corps will make a decision by late summer.

LEDIC wants to turn the historic buildings into loft apartments and the plan now is to begin the multi-million dollar renovation job by Jan. 1, 2018.
