Liberty University to Build Lynchburg's Tallest Building

Lynchburg may soon have a new "tallest building".

Liberty University's "Monument Tower" will have space for classrooms, offices, and a new campus bookstore.

Plans call for the tower to be 252 feet tall, eclipsing the tallest building in the city, the Bank of the James building downtown.

Groundbreaking and construction is expected to begin on the tower in the fall.
