ORONO, Maine – University CU on Tuesday began clearing ground at the historic 1820s Katahdin Building – which was gutted by fire in 2009 – on a new 16,000-square-foot, Greek Revival-style structure that will serve as its administrative offices.

The project will consist of two wings and include drive-through lanes, a parking area and an urban plaza. The plaza – which will have seating, a sculpture and other amenities – will serve as a community gathering spot, University CU said.
