Published 5-7-2000

George Mason University is hopeful that funding for construction of a new 100,000-sf building at its Manassas campus will be approved by the Virginia General Assembly in its 2000 session. Classrooms, conference center, and a bookstore would be housed in the new  $22 million facility. Groundbreaking could begin in fall 2000, with construction requiring 18 months. Existing buildings at the campus house research and biotechnology operations.
