Bowdoin Opens its Newest Building, the McLellan Building

Story posted December 09, 1999

Contractors are putting the finishing touches on the McLellan Building at 85 Union St., and several departments are preparing to move there in the coming months.

The building represents a spirit of cooperation between the College and the town, which needed the commitment of an "anchor" resident to begin developing the last developable parcel in downtown Brunswick. It is also the College's first major construction project off campus.

The moving schedule is as follows:

Office of Communications: The occupants of Getchell House -- people working on public affairs, publications, the web, the alumni magazine and community and government relations -- moved on Friday, Dec. 17.

Controller's Office: Moved Wednesday, Dec. 22. In order to maintain a presence on campus, a cashier will continue to staff the former office in the basement of Hawthorne-Longfellow Hall on Tuesdays from 1-5 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., until further notice.

Studio Art: Prof. Mark Wethli will be packing his studio in Fort Andross on Jan. 3 and moving on Jan. 4. The same is true of Prof. James Mullen, who now occupies a studio in Adams Hall. They will continue to share an office in the Visual Arts Center.

Upward Bound: Packing on Jan. 6; moving from Ham House on Jan. 7; up and running on Jan. 10.

Human Resources and Payroll: Packing on Wednesday, Jan. 12; moving on Thursday, Jan. 13; operating on a limited basis on Friday, Jan. 14.

Photo Studio: Prof. John McKee will be packing on Thursday, Jan. 13, and moving on Friday, Jan. 14. His office will remain in the Visual Arts Center.
