Demolition began last week at the former Southeastern University campus building, located at 501 I Street. It will take approximately five weeks to demolish the structure, which has been vacant for several years. The Shakespeare Theater Company purchased the building last year from the Graduate School USA and has partnered with developer Erkiletian to build a mixed-use project with space for theater operations and apartments above. There will be a presentation tomorrow evening at Westminster Church (400 I Street) starting at 7pm where the development plan will be shared with the community.
