Demolition of the former Robinson Community Learning Center (RCLC) building will begin Tuesday (Oct. 6), paving the way for additional development of the Eddy Street Commons area south of the University of Notre Dame.
The work includes the former RCLC building plus the attached former Notre Dame Surplus Property/QuarkNet building. It also includes two adjacent buildings: the former Approved Safety and Security and the former Corby Fabric Care Center, side-by-side on Corby Boulevard.
“It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to the old Robinson Community Learning Center, the backdrop to so many wonderful moments and the basis of so many important relationships these past two decades,” said Jennifer Knapp Beudert, manager of the RCLC. “At the same time, we look forward to further development of the area, and to a bright future for the new RCLC.”
