CHARLOTTE — On Wednesday, Central Piedmont Community College was issued a building permit valued at almost $2.4 million for renovation work on the Citizens Building on its Central Campus.
Rodgers Builders has been working on the renovation project since the fall, said Jeff Lowrance, a CPCC spokesman. Lowrance said the building, at 1221 Charlottetowne Ave., used to house the community college’s culinary arts program, but is being transformed into the main data center for the entire Central Campus.
“It’s going to become our network nerve center,” Lowrance said. “The building has already been gutted, so now the work is geared toward infrastructure and electrical systems.”
CPCC’s data center is currently in the Terrell Building on the Central Campus, Lowrance said, adding that September is when the Citizens Building is expected to be ready for occupancy.
