Project Updates
framing inside the new WCA
  • Willamette Career Academy is under construction and plans call for a Fall 2021 opening. The progam is located on Lancaster Drive in Salem, in the building formerly housing the Toys R Us store. The development team is working closely with regional educators, industry partners and many other stakeholders to create a program that will position students for their next step following high school.

    The project continues to forge ahead in preparation for opening in the fall of 2021. At the site, there is a lot of activity and construction taking place inside the building. Electrical work, sprinklers, and plumbing have been completed along with all of the interior framing. Next week, the drywall will be going up, which will start to really bring the interior spaces to life. This future space will be an amazing space for learning and providing opportunities to the students in our region.
