Construction is complete on a soundstage facility in the Lower Garden District.

A ribbon-cutting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday for Second Line Stages at 800 Richard St., a $32 million project from owner and developer Susan Brennan and film consultants Trey Burvant and Diane Wheeler-Nicholson.

A mix of federal and state tax credits, combined with upfront financing, funded the project.

It involved turning a former taxi garage at Annunciation and Richard streets into two soundstages and three support structures.

New construction includes a four-story office facility, a third soundstage and a digital screening facility with seating for 50.
