Smith College wants to build new student housing, but first it needs permission to knock down three buildings at its Northampton campus. Smith spokeswoman Kristen Cole says the college has filed for demolition permits for the Mason Infirmary, Sunnyside Child Care, and a vacant house. The city’s Historical Commission has scheduled a public hearing to determine if the old day care facility and the home should be preserved. Both were built in the late 1800s. About a year ago, Smith tore down two other buildings after a one-year demolition delay by the Historical Commission.
