SU Campus to Expand
SU Maintenance Facilities to Relocate in Noland Building
The Noland Corporation is relocating and so are Salisbury University’s maintenance facilities.
The plumbing supply company recently advertised for sale its South Division Street property, which borders the University. Noland may move to the Route 13 north business corridor, SU was told.The Salisbury University Foundation began negotiating for the property’s purchase as part of SU’s strategic expansion of its campus. This week the Foundation and Noland announced they have finalized an agreement which will allow the Foundation to take possession in June.
The University will lease the 3.45-acre property and its 36,392-square-foot building from the Foundation once this occurs. Eventually SU’s maintenance facilities will move into the building.
The University has been designated a growth institution by the University System of Maryland and the campus has expanded to accommodate growth in size and quality. Currently, three major projects are under construction or in planning: SU’s first parking garage is under construction at the corner of Bateman and Wayne streets. It will have parking for some 850 vehicles and is scheduled to open in September.
This fall construction is expected to begin on a new home for the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business and a new student residence complex, with retail space, at the current site of the Allenwood Shopping Center. These two projects are expected to open in fall 2011.
Telecommunications, Events Services Moving to Paper People Building
As part of the campus' strategic development, SU has purchased the Paper People Building on Bateman Street, across from the University parking garage currently under construction.
The University is expected to take possession May 1 of the .53-acre property and its 14,400-square-foot building. It will house the University’s Telecommunications Office and operations, Events Services Office and other service space as needed during upcoming campus construction.
When the SU Foundation learned the property had been listed for sale, it began negotiations on behalf of the campus. The Maryland Board of Public Works ultimately approved purchase of the property by the University.
