SUGAR GROVE – Waubonsee Community College has reached an agreement to sell its former downtown Aurora campus buildings, according to a news release issued Thursday by the school.

Waubonsee moved its downtown Aurora operations in June 2011 to a new site at 18 S. River St., Aurora. On Thursday, the school announced a purchase agreement in the amount of $1.5 million with developer Gorman & Company. The former campus will be the site of a new mixed-use residential and retail development, the release stated. The closing is expected in January, the release stated.

Waubonsee initially opened its former Aurora campus in August 1986 and expanded the campus a year later.

Waubonsee’s main campus is on Route 47 in Sugar Grove.
