Missed this from 2 weeks ago. I haven't found many other construction photos, but from the renderings, it looks like this is a pretty nice upgrade. Phased construction is still ongoing.

New State High Building Opens
Geoff Rushton | StateCollege.com
January 08, 2018

There is still work to be done, but after nearly two years of construction and many more of planning, the State High project reached a major milestone on Monday. As about 2,300 students returned from winter break, they started things off with a pep rally in the north building gym, complete with the marching band. They then headed across Westerly Parkway to begin classes in the new south building, the first phase of a $137 million, three-phase project...

I like the scale of this project and the integration of the new Hillel community center on Beaver. Hopefully, the trend of building larger and taller mixed-use projects such as this and RISE will continue.

I just hope that the NIMBYS are ignored. I know there is a growing sentiment among a few that these larger mixed-use projects are destroying the scale and character of downtown State College. I suppose they rather see fertile farm land and wooded properties plowed over for low density tract housing like over in Toftrees.

The historic Glennland Building on Beaver Ave. I believe this will be a very nice upgrade for hotels in town.

Some other news. The Minut Mart/Sunoco is being dramatically upgraded to a larger new convenience store. Quite a shame as this this continues to be one of the most underutilized spots in downtown and will continue to look even more out of place with the Metropolitan and the new Residences at College and Atherton going up.
