Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon begins construction of new downtown campus

 
Oregon Daily Herald
 
Lane Community College held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new Downtown Campus Friday, officially kicking off the construction of a 90,000-square-foot academic building and an associated 87,000-square-foot student apartment building.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley joined LCC President Mary Spilde, Lane Board of Education Chair Tony McCown, Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy and Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber's Education Policy Advisor Nancy Golden for a ceremonial dirt-tossing into the open pit where the new campus will soon stand.

"The building itself will be a living and learning lab for our students. It will teach — it will be a building that teaches. It will be a building also for our business community," Spilde told KVAL regarding the project.

The expansive project, located at 10th Avenue and Charnelton Street, is one of the most pricey downtown construction projects to date, trumping the $70 million, 260,000-square-foot Wayne L. Morse U.S. Courthouse built in 2006, as well as the $34 million, 164,000-square-foot neighboring public library.

The $33.1 million classroom facility will showcase LCC's energy management programs, and the housing structure — with an estimated price tag of $20.3 million — will provide students with urban living spaces as an alternate to daily commuting.

LCC's construction timetable calls for initiating construction this spring and opening the new buildings' doors by fall 2012.
