Harrisburg Happening

Midtown Development

Taking a lesson from Savannah and the Savannah College of Art and Design, HACC is working with the City of Harrisburg to convert the old press building on Third and Reily into classroom space. The apparent plan is to create a pedestrian walkway to their other building about a block away. And just a few weeks ago, HACC opened a restaurant and bar, as well as a bakery and butcher shop at the other end of Third. Like SCAD, HACC appears to be spreading out across the city. In Savannah, that has meant areas untouched by redevelopent blossomed as soon as SCAD put in each new building. Let's hope that happens here, too.

Interesting. This is literally around the corner from me. Any further details? When will this take place? Will it be one department? Many? I have a million questions...

I don't want to "scoop" the competition, since I got the info via a HACC internal email. But it looks very very promising and exciting
