ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Darton College has started work on transforming into a residential college....now building their first residence halls on campus for students.
The construction of Darton's first residential dorm complex is underway behind their soccer fields near Westover Boulevard.
The huge complex will cost $7, 250,000, with apartment style rooms for 210 students. Every student will have a private bathroom in the apartments.
Plans call for students to move in Fall semester 2009, with a second residential complex the same size to be built then.
College planners say the growth and student residents will have a 120 million dollar annual impact on the local economy.
Darton College President Dr. Peter Sireno said "We also see restaurants and other types of retailing establishments that will serve the needs of students. So we see lots of changes that are going to occur to this Southwest part of Albany. "
The Darton College Foundation will start next month a fund raising drive, aiming to raise $1, 500,000 in the next six months to get the best financing rates for the college's growth.
Darton is already the second largest two year college in Georgia, with more than five thousand students, and leaders expect unprecedented growth when they add student housing.
