Manhattan Christian College is closing in on the purchase of the Anderson Village property adjacent to it, with plans to turn the upper level apartments into housing for male students by the 2022-23 school year.
President Kevin Ingram on KMAN’s In Focus Wednesday said buying the mixed-use property would allow the college to replace the current men’s dormitory Johnson Hall.
Ingram made clear that the move to use the upper floor of the building as housing for MCC, however, won’t take place for the upcoming school year.
MCC sold Anderson Village to a private developer in 1985. Ingram said that nearly half of the donation goal for buying it back has been met.
