Redevelopment Commission Approval

On February 4, 2015, Union Square Campus took another significant step forward with the Redevelopment Commission of Greensboro’s approval of its building plans and site layout.

The first building of Union Square campus will be located on the corner of Lee and Arlington Streets in Downtown Greensboro. Healthcare Professions – initially, nursing — will comprise the first phase of the project, with the initial key stakeholder/tenants being UNCG, NCA&T, GTCC, and Cone Health.

The $35 to $37 million, three-story building will contain classrooms, labs, and offices for nursing education at every level: 2-year Associates Degree, RN to BSN and accelerated BSN programs, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and continuing education certificate programs. By housing programs together, the four tenants can share lab space and equipment, at significant cost savings.

The facility will also include a 350- seat auditorium and a state-of-the art simulation lab.

The Redevelopment Commission of Greensboro studies, plans, and implements redevelopment projects for blighted areas within the city. It is established under and regulated by NC General Statutes and the Greensboro Development Ordinance.
