Edifice to Build New Major Venue for Performing Arts
WILMINGTON, NC – The Cape Fear Community College Board of Trustees recently approved a plan to build a $39.9 million facility, 159,368 square-foot Humanities and Fine Arts Center on the Cape Fear Community College campus.
In addition to serving the needs of students in the college’s humanities and fine arts department, the facility will also ultimately provide the community with a new major venue for the performing arts.
Located in downtown Wilmington, the building will encompass a 1,500-seat performance auditorium and three floors of classrooms and studios.
CFCC Board Chairman Barren Nobles recently shard his excitement about the project adding, “Awarding the construction contract is a significant step in making the Humanities and Fine Arts Center a reality.”
“We are pleased that this facility will provide excellent opportunities for students and serve as an impressive, new location for cultural events for the greater community,” added Nobles.
Designed by LS3P, the Humanities and Fine Arts Center is slated to break ground in mid to late March 2013 and take approximately 20 months to complete.
