July 23, 2020
Ivy Tech Community College says the 60,000-square-foot training center is scheduled to open in 2021.

Ivy Tech Community College has begun construction of a new Automotive Technology Training Center in Indianapolis' International Marketplace District.

Inside Indiana Business reports that the the nearly 60,000-square-foot building will house classrooms, training labs, faculty offices, and student commons.

It is expected to be complete before the fall 2021 semester and will replace an existing facility on East Washington Street.

Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann says the college expects enrollment for the program to double as a result of the new facility.

The new facility is part of the more than $176 million in new developments planned for the International Marketplace District, which is home to more than 700 businesses.

Those developments will result in more than 2,000 jobs, says Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett.

Ivy Tech says it plans to enhance partnerships within the neighborhood to increase educational attainment and is already partnered with the Global Village, where it will offer general classes.
