LOWELL — Lowell Catholic on Monday began construction of a new, 25,000-square-foot educational building with a ceremonial groundbreaking attended by school and city officials, students and alumni
The new building is being constructed behind Legacy Hall and will house a state of the art learning commons, classrooms, an expanded cafeteria, physics lab and administrative offices. Current building plans project a fully operational facility by the fall of 2019.
MassDevelopment announced earlier this year it issued a $10 million bond to finance the project.
The school is working with Gavin & Sullivan Architects and Charter Brothers Construction on the facility, which will mirror the look and feel of the other buildings on campus. The project is being financed by Salem Five and Lowell Five Banks through a tax exempt Mass Development Bond.
