The North Carolina Central University (NCCU) in Durham will soon be a busy hub of construction, according to a report in The Charlotte Observer.
In 2019, the university will break ground on several large projects designed to reshape the campus experience for the 8,200 students at the downtown Durham campus.
Construction includes three new residential buildings, a new business school and a $47 million student center. The buildings will replace aging structures, some of which will be demolished, according to the Observer.
The $47-million student center is expected to be a major upgrade for the student experience at NCCU, according to school officials. The center will be built on a parking area near the corner of Nelson and Fayetteville streets. Construction will begin in the next month or two, and the center should open in 2021.
