Demolition Continues, In Preparation For New Walters State Facilities

Greeneville Sun photos by Brian Cutshall. Demolition and cleanup work continued along North College Street in Greeneville on Monday. Removal of several downtown structures will make way for an expanded campus for the adjacent Walters State Community College.

Demolition work continues in areas adjacent to the Greeneville/Greene County campus of Walters State Community College, with much of Monday’s activity concentrated in front of the former Ross Furniture building on North College Street in the former Spencer Square Shopping Center.

Crews removed debris from earlier demolition, in preparation for razing the shopping center, which once housed businesses that fronted College and Main Streets.

In a statement issued earlier this month, a college spokesman said, “Walters State is excited to begin construction on a state-of-the-art facility that will enable the college to expand academic programs and support services in response to the educational and workforce needs of Greene County and the surrounding area.

"Walters State students will have access to facilities that complement the quality academic programs in which they are enrolled.

"Up-to-date natural science and allied health labs, SMART classrooms, residential police and fire academies, a high-tech media library and other student support areas will greatly enhance the college's mission to increase local educational attainment rates and better prepare our students for jobs in the 21st-century economy."

WSCC hopes to complete the expansion project by fall 2014.

A nearby residence, known as the George Jones home, was demolished earlier this month as part of the college’s construction plans.
