Looks like the exterior is nearly completed. This building looks pretty massive on that plot of land. It will be interesting to see what they do with the current health center just east of this when the new health center is completed.

Found a video that gives an inside view of the progress:

Holy |expletive|, that's behind Kauffman. I always liked that greenspace back there when I was in Selleck, but I suppose it was bound to be filled up eventually. I haven't been on campus in years, wowza.

From what I've seen the parking lot directly east of he stadium is going away and will all be green space.

I bet that'll upset off the people from North stadium who have tailgated there for centuries.

Actually, I believe all of the parking on the east side of the stadium is REMAINING for the foreseeable future. Several wealthy donors complained about the loss of that primo parking/tailgating locations and not surprisingly, the Regents gave in. Such a shame because making a signature green space on that part of the campus could really do a lot for what is otherwise a somewhat dismal campus.

Link to the LJS story that mentions these approved.

http://journalstar.com/news/local/educa ... cc02d.html


.................The University of Nebraska Board of Regents unanimously approved a $6.25 million plan put forward by Husker Athletics to replace the screens.

Funds to pay for replacing the screens will come entirely from athletic department revenues -- not state tax dollars, said Hank Bounds, president of the NU system.....................


Regents approved allocating $7.3 million from excess bond funds to pay to demolish Pound and Cather halls..................

Ohhh... gotcha.

I still wonder how they are going to successfully do that, given how close the buildings are to the "Husker Courtyards" dorm.

Cather-Pound were pretty old and long in the tooth when I was there in the late 70's and early 80's. Is the demand for dorms going down so low that Abel Sandoz and Harper, Schramm, Smith are on their way out as well?

Not that I know of for now but Burr Feddie on East Campus is in it final year this year. The new dorm / suites on East will be open next fall.

They actually kept these open longer than they wanted b/c they had too many dorm requests for a few years now.

HSS complex isn't in too bad of shape. They also retouched Abel not long ago, so my guess is that those stay around for a while.
