University of Scranton breaks ground for building


Cartwright helped secure $16.62 million for the project. Hemmler and Camayd are the architects Quandel Construction will serve as the construction manager. The University plans to begin use of the building for the fall 2025 semester.

Construction of a nearly 90,000-square-foot building got a ceremonial launch Monday as University of Scranton officials gathered to break ground Monday for a structure to house workforce development, applied research and outreach.

The four-story edifice will rise in the 300 block of Madison Avenue.

The building will house the University of Success, a four-year college preparation initiative for area high school-students, and The University of Scranton Small Business Development Center, established at the University in 1980 and now serving an eight-county area.

“This facility includes a 10,000-square-foot innovation hub right on the first floor that we expect will be a centerpiece for collaboration and will serve as a dynamic resource for the campus and greater Scranton community,” Maldonado said.
