Troy University has begun demolition of the Executive Building, located at 312 Montgomery Street, starting today.
Also known as the Shepherd Building, the 8-story building is currently vacant and has become a hazard due to its disrepair.
The demolition is expected be finished in approximately two to three months. Questions regarding road closures or the rerouting of traffic as a result of the project should be directed to the City of Montgomery.
Once the demolition is complete, TROY will use the location to provide “green space” and additional parking for the Montgomery Campus.
The Executive Building was donated to TROY in 2002.
Dr. John Schmidt, Senior Vice Chancellor for Advancement and External Affairs, chair of the Pike County Economic Development Corporation at the time of recruiting CGI to Troy, cited two additional considerations.
