The former Lake City Plaza located on West Main Street was once home to the popular retail companies, Belk, Maxway, Piggly Wiggly and others. However, these companies have relocated or left the City leaving behind a 100,000 or more square foot building that is rapidly deteriorating. The City along with our partner the Greater Lake City Community Development Office (GLCCDO) have been working diligently to complete environmental assessments and develop a beneficial reuse of this property for all Lake City residents. This 10 acre property has a lot of potential and a bright future.

The new campus is scheduled to open January 2019.
