The building at 301 High St. in downtown Glassboro was once intended to hold several condominiums. As the years went by, however, the structure, built right around the 2008 economic downturn, sat empty.
For the first time on Monday, Glassboro and Rowan University officials opened the doors of the half-finished structure to unveil their plans for the space, which will serve as the home of Rowan’s art gallery in addition to offices and classrooms.
