Media Advisory: Troy University's Phenix City Riverfront demolition to begin Thursday

Posted: Wednesday, 19 November 2008

Nov. 20: The River View Apartments on the Riverfront in Phenix City are scheduled for demolition at approximately 10 a.m. EST. In September, the City of Phenix City donated about 4 acres of land to Troy University.

To serve as an anchor for future development, the University expects to begin construction on a 30,000 square-foot building on the site, once funds have been raised to cover the construction costs. The University’s intent for the building is to house Sorrell College of Business programs along with various other educational opportunities the University offers. Its current campus near Phenix City will continue to operate.
