Coastline Community College's new $48-million campus in Newport Beach is starting to take shape.
The first phase of construction — demolition, grading and installing underground utilities — is complete for the campus at 1515 Monrovia Ave.
Workers have started construction on the three-story building and are expected to start on the first story's walls Friday, said Dave Cant, director of maintenance and operations.
"It's actually moving along really well," he said. "We're on schedule."
Coastline broke ground in April on a 3.4-acre site between Monrovia Avenue and Banning Ranch that will replace its existing Costa Mesa campus at Mesa Verde Drive East and Baker Street.
The Fountain Valley-based Coastline has campuses in Costa Mesa, Garden Grove and Westminster.
The new campus will offer general education, paralegal and acquired brain injury coursework, as well as programs for veterans and disabled students.
