Demolition work began the week of March 30 on the corner of Fourth Plain Blvd. and Fort Vancouver Way on the northwest end of Clark College’s main campus. The 9,800 square-foot of buildings being demolished are owned by Clark College Foundation.

The future of the corner will have several phases. After the demolition, some of the space will be converted into parking, which will help to offset parking losses due to the construction of the college’s new 70,000 square-foot STEM building and remodeling of a culinary facility on the Clark College campus.

Long term, the corner of Fourth Plain Blvd. and Fort Vancouver Way is part of Clark College’s Facilities Master Plan and many options are under consideration. One option is for the foundation or college to partner with a developer to develop the property, but the location currently has no funding identified for any project or specific use.

The demolition will run through approximately April 3, 2015, with clean up and ground leveling occurring through the middle of April.

The buildings gone, the ground is now being leveled on the corner of 4th Plain Blvd and Fort Vancouver Way.
