MUSKEGON, Mich.- Muskegon Community College's downtown campus is inching closer to completion.

Friday afternoon the college invited the public to an open house after finishing the projects design phase.

The tours kicked off in the old Muskegon Chronicle building, which will soon be home to MCC's Applied Technology Program starting in 2017.

That, and the soon-to-be Rooks Sarnicola Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies in the former Masonic Temple.

Both additions will total 120,000 sq. ft., doubling the size of the technology department on MCC's main campus.

The project is set to cost more than 35 million dollars.

"Hopefully it's the central place of downtown Muskegon and it draws youth downtown, along with giving them education opportunities to go out in manufacturing and industry," said Tom Martin, Chair of Applied Technology Department.

In addition to that open house downtown, MCC showed off their brand new science center on campus, the first new building to open there in a decade.
