To anyone who has been in the building in the past 20 years, the renovated Postal Plaza will look entirely different once construction is wrapped up this fall.

But anyone who knew the downtown Stillwater landmark as it looked more than 30 years ago is bound to recognize the inside of the building when it re-opens in the fall, said Mike Buchert, Oklahoma State University's long-range facilities planning director.

OSU is renovating the historic building for use as a gallery to house the university's art collection. Buchert said Thursday that crews are about a third of the way through with construction, and hope to be able to open the building in late September.
