Central Piedmont Community College (Central Campus) plans to build a clock tower located along Elizabeth Avenue between the Terrell building & Elizabeth classroom building. The clock tower will stand 48′ tall and will be constructed of brick and cast stone. The tower is a gift from H. Allen Tate, Jr a local business man, founder & CEO of Allen Tate Companies. Mr. Tate felt something was missing from this campus and hopes the tower will serve as a “great symbol of achievement and a reminder of all the hard work and commitment students have made to achieve their goals.” A wonderful gift from a special man.
The clock tower is expected to be complete by early 2015.
