The future STEM building, located at 282 Academy St., is currently a parking lot across the street from Jersey City's School 11.
"We're growing, we're going to continue to grow, we're going to continue to succeed because of what we have, the human resource, the personnel and our student body," Hudson County Freeholder Anthony Romano said. "We're going to keep building."
The building is expected to open in time for the 2017 fall semester, officials said. In the past few years, HCCC has built a new library and and renovated and reopened the former Hudson County welfare building at the corner of Enos Place and Newkirk Street.
