AUSTIN - The former JCPenney department store at Highland Mall is currently undergoing a dramatic multimillion transformation to be Austin Community College's 11th campus. The college is spending $60 million to renovate the 214,000-sf building, plus $10 million for associated utility work.

  • Draft concept plans call for renovating other portions of the mall for college use over time. About 70 shops and a food court will continue operating until the space is needed

The new school will have the capacity for 6,200 students. In August 2013, ACC opened its ninth campus in Elgin and in January 2014 the school opened its tenth in Kyle.
