CFCC moves forward on Fine Arts Center


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Cape Fear Community College is one step closer to building its Humanities and Fine Arts Center downtown.

The school's board of trustees approved a plan to build the nearly 160,000 square foot facility across the street from CFCC's parking deck on North 3rd Street.

The building will feature classrooms and studios as well as a 1,500-seat performance auditorium.

"This is going to open up a lot of opportunities for students," CFCC spokesman David Hardin said. "I think it's going to attract new students to the area, and it will be a great new addition to downtown Wilmington as well."

Construction on the $39.9 million facility is expected to begin next March and take about 20 months to complete.
