Construction Nearly Complete for Binghamton Univ. Nursing College
A century-old Endicott Johnson factory has nearly been transformed into the new home for Binghamton University's Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
After several years of planning, construction at the Johnson City site is in its final stages.
A university spokesman said work is underway to furnish the lower four floors of the structure at the corner of Corliss Avenue and Willow Street.
The new complex will provide 113,000 square feet of space as the university expands its Health and Sciences Campus one block south of Main Street in the village.
The spokesman said "the final punch list of items" is being addressed so the facility can be ready for the spring semester.
The renovation work on the first four floors created classrooms, simulation labs and offices. Information commons, food service and public space also will be available in the new facility.
The building is located east of the university's pharmacy school complex. A research and development building also is to be constructed as part of the Johnson City campus.
