Tent city + log-cabin siding and gravel sidewalks. 04-cheers

The temp location is gonna look like sh*t, but the old DHall must be replaced, and hopefully "dHub" will meet the short term needs. The good lord only knows how the HVAC will function, and I can only imagine the nightmare it's going to be to put in the plumbing and other utilities at that location.

The new DHall will be a great addition, but for the next 2.5 years it's going to be a giant construction pain in the arse for the students living on campus who would have otherwise eaten at the old DHall.
I think the biggest problem for us is going to be parking. There are already major parking issues on campus. And Dhub is just going to cut into the baseball lot parking. The new parking deck on south mason wont be done until the summer of 2016 so its going to be hell for a semester and a half.


Well, if it's any consolation there were "major parking issues" on campus 20+ years ago too.

Get a bike or a skateboard...

Yeah I may be 10 years removed, but the parking issues back then really just boiled down to students not wanting to walk half a mile. If you go to an area around a major building at peaks times, yeah... The perfect spots might be taken. If you drive another 1/10 of a mile, you'll find a spot.

Parking gripes have been around forever. I used to get so many parking tickets down there it was ridiculous. Between the campus cadet nazis and the HPD, a parking scofflaw like me never stood a chance.

Perhaps it's just the vision of meals served under a temporary tent. Images of military "mess" halls come to mind.....<shivers>

Meant to post some pics last week. Structure is starting to go up... but you get a feel for what the temporary building will look like.

Thanks for the pics. Was going to swing by there yesterday after the WBB game but we went and checked out NURec instead and I forgot to go down to R1.

Rendering looks very nice.
