Auburn University is one step closer to being a part of Gulf Shores.

On Friday, officials from the university and the city of Gulf Shores will break ground on the Auburn University Educational Complex.

The complex will be used by the College of Veterinary Medicine, the Auburn Aviation Center, the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System.

The complex is a 24,000-square foot building which will be located at the corner of the Beach Express and County Road 8, adjacent to land acquired by the City of Gulf Shores.

It's scheduled to open in fall 2018.
