Original plans for the Paul J. Schupf Art Center in downtown Waterville called for maintaining The Center’s original façade, facing Main Street, in line with the intent of Colby College and its president, David A. Greene, to blend the city’s architectural history into its revitalized and new buildings. However, the project’s architects and engineers have determined the time it would take to design and build such a structure would push its completion date several years into the future. On Monday, with new plans that include a new façade and that call for a completion date in fall 2022, the college and its collaborators, including Waterville Creates!, saw the first physical steps taken in the process of building the $18 million structure, as fences and barricades outlining the building site were put into place.
