A Mechanicsburg couple and Bloomsburg University alumni recently donated $1 million to the BU Foundation.
The donation came from Duane R. and Susan Basar Greenly of Mechanicsburg. The couple will establish The Greenly Center on the site of the former Cole’s Hardware in downtown Bloomsburg.
The 44,700-square-foot center will house the offices of the BU Foundation and other tenants in a four-story structure with underground parking.
Pending approval, the project will begin in August with the razing of the current building. Completion of the $6.5 million project is expected in June or July 2014.
Duane Greenly is a member of the BU Foundation Board of Directors.
