Conversion of Dominican Center at MSMC approved

NEWBURGH – The $20.5 million renovation of the Dominican Center at Mount Saint Mary College is expected to begin in July and be completed in August 2013.

The College Board of Trustees unanimously approved the project that College President Fr. Kevin Mackin said will be the hallmark of the Newburgh school.

“The Dominican Center is kind of the signature building of the campus and it has 90,000 square feet and we’re doing something unique,” Mackin said.

The first floor of the stately building will be a high-tech library. The chapel will remain on the second floor and the third, fourth and fifth floors will be converted to student dormitories.

The college last year bought the building from the Dominican Sisters.
