CCS to expand into New Center

CCS hopes to redevelop the Argonaut Building, a beautiful, Albert Kahn-designed structure in the New Center:

According to the News, the building would include "new graduate programs, dormitory facilities for about 250 students and studios, and will include office space for nonprofit organizations and a business incubator to help fledgling design businesses."

In a move similar to that of the Science Center, they also plan to sponsor new charter schools within the building for middle and high school students. The schools will focus on art and visual design.
