Has to be the first thing since the barn they've torn down since the campus opened.

I get sick to my stomach every time I think about the barn being torn down - so much tradition could have been centered around the barn.

Looks like they're starting to dismantle Smurf Village.  There were a stack of doors and dressers outside on the lawn.

Great, now my kids will never know how shitty my dorm use to be.

That is kind of sad, met my wife in the Smurf.

Still time to sneak into one of the units and make a final Smurf Village memory!

30 - Opposite side of the Tennis Center
40 - Rec Field 5 listed in the last image
42 - Courtyard side of Phase IX dorms
 
The rest not construction but there's not a lot of pictures out there of TransAmerica Field and I might add these to the Wiki page.

Smurf Village?  Is that Phase III?  If so I lived there my last year, and a semester after they opened.  You could tell that they were built by the low bid contractor, and looking back I wouldn't trade my Moore Hall years for more time in the apartments for anything.  Times have changed but the high rise dorms were college.  More privacy and an X-Box are no substitute.

Yep, Phase III, the blue buildings.  State law says all residence halls have to have sprinklers and it wasn't cost-effective to try to retrofit them; same thing with Martin and Hunt Villages, too: they're going to be demolished over the next couple years.  Eventually Phase III and Martin will be replaced with high-density housing.

Niner News needs to learn how to hold a video camera, or not have Michael J. Fox in charge of filming. Here's a few pics I took when I did some work in Prospector last week.

Drove to campus today to study and noticed the new JW Clay construction of what appears to be another entrance to our campus. Some new buildings back there to. Really surprising, didn't even know they were building back there. From the other 29 Entrance, it appears to be more buildings to the right of Grigg hall, almost it seems right next to the hospital.

Also noticed all the construction like mentioned before. That whole CRI area is a buzz!

Noticed a few HUGE boulders, would be great if they were moved and used as spirit rocks or some kind of art. Can you guys believe all this construction? In my years on campus, it underwent drastic changes and I remember meeting some of you alumni then and you guys would tell me about how it used to look 5 years before I went there. Now I can be 'that' alum who tells the stories of how it used to be!

And the stadium! Wow, so many construction trucks out there. NNN is the direct cause of that!!!! 10 guys at a Hickory Tavern once drank too much and decided to act. Jeez....

... been away from campus for like 6 months I feel like I haven't been to campus in ages.
I know I probably just officially ruffled some feathers

Here's a rendering I found online of the original plans for the CRI campus entrance. Its dated 2007. If nothing has change, then I'd say this entrance is going to be pretty busy in 5-10 years.

Second rendering is for an earlier master plan. Dated 2005.

Are any of these buildings going to be parking decks?

Parking Deck I is under construction between Grigg and EPIC. They plan to add another behind the Kulwichi Center.

Deck I is under construction now, over by the new road from JW Clay.


Based on the 2009 Master Plan, I think those drawings are a bit speculative; they don't match what's in the current Plan.  The PORTAL building is supposed to start construction soon.  It'll go where the contractor parking lot is now, across from Bioinformatics and Grigg.

The project will provide 1,000 spaces for a new parking deck located near the proposed residence halls at the South Village.

Facilities has a new campus map that shows recently completed construction and the footprint of new work.  You can see the new rec fields by Wachovia Fieldhouse and on John Kirk, new parking lot by Robinson Hall, Phase IX / Spruce Hall, North Deck, Deck I at CRI, Motorsports II, tennis facility, etc.

This is mostly about the floor tiles and patterns for EPIC, but on page 2, if you zoom in, there are floor plans, if you're interested in that sort of thing.  It's a 24.9 MB PDF.

Check out the construction cam for 8:03 pm July 4th and see if you can see the faint rainbow.  ;D
