Construction crews are deep in the dirt at the site of the new Greene County Career Center on the south edge of Xenia. The approximately 34-acre parcel is bounded by Union Road, U.S. 35, U.S. 68 and an old farm fence to the south and was selected because of its centralized location and ease of access.
The $62 million project will include a 260,000 square-foot, two-story building designed by Levin Porter Architects that has glass wall entrance features. Shook Construction is the general contractor.
The existing Greene County Career Center on West Enon Road was started in 1966 and has become outdated due to the lack of a modern electrical system to accommodate new technology and equipment according to school officials.
The new facility is expected to open in the summer of 2020 and be ready for the 2020-2021 school year according to Rob Bolender, Public Information Administrator, Greene County Career Center
