A groundbreaking ceremony will take place Wednesday, March 28, 2007 at 1:30 p.m. to celebrate the upcoming construction of Thomas Nelson Community College’s new Historic Triangle Campus. The new campus site is located in the Lightfoot area of James City County, near the intersection of Route 60 and Centerville Road.
The new campus will be built on 73.46 acres of land on the Warhill site, which was offered by James City County to the Commonwealth of Virginia for the purpose of building a campus for the College. Strategically located next to the Williamsburg-James City County (W-JCC) new Warhill high school, the College will work in collaboration with the W-JCC school system to develop programs and other opportunities that will facilitate the transition of high school students to college. The new campus will also play a major role in serving the workforce development needs of the business community and in assisting individual citizens achieve their educational goals.
Based on a projected enrollment of nearly 7,000 students, the master site plans includes state-of-the-art educational facilities that will be housed in five buildings for academic, administrative, student and faculty support and a Physical Plant facility. Surface parking lots and parking decks are also included in the plan. The first phase of construction will be a 120,000 square foot building slated to be completed by December 2008.
The Historic Triangle campus is the only new campus being built in the Virginia Community College System. The master site plan, designed by Moseley Architects of Virginia Beach has been approved by the State Board for Community Colleges.
