Groundbreaking held for new apartment complex in Monongalia County

Monongalia and Preston

Thursday afternoon a groundbreaking was held in Monongalia County for a new luxury apartment complex.

Representatives from A B Contracting and the Morgantown Chamber of Commerce attended. 

This is for the future site of Black Bear Village, which is right across from the Black Bears Stadium. 

Residents will have access to many shopping and restaurant options within the University Town Centre. 

The complex is scheduled for completion in July of 2019. 

“We’re hoping to have what’s not here for the after school, for the graduates. The students that are sticking around and are going to be professionals here in the area and they want a living experience with amenities close to shopping,” said Brian Wadsworth, A B Contracting. 

This is a $20 million project which will include 250 units.
