    University to share developing ideas for campus buildings with residents of Woodlawn at Sept. 8 community meeting

    For the last year, University Facilities Services has been working with the architectural firm of Ayers Saint Gross, which specializes in campus planning, to further develop the University’s Campus Master Plan of 1999.

    University officials and representatives of Ayers Saint Gross will present the proposed new construction projects for the south campus at a Wednesday, Sept. 8 community meeting.

    This process is designed to determine the best path toward developing several facilities south of the Midway Plaisance, including a new undergraduate residence hall, more parking options, a Graduate School of Business residential commons, and the Center for Creative and Performing Arts—which had been noted as future facilities in the original Campus Master Plan.

    The University and Alderwoman Arenda Troutman, who represents the residents of the Woodlawn neighborhood, are co-sponsoring the meeting, at which Woodlawn residents will learn of the developing ideas for new facilities being planned on the University’s campus.

    Residents will have an opportunity to discuss the plans and provide feedback to Troutman, senior University staff and the planners of Ayers Saint Gross.

    The meeting, which is open to the public, is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 8, at the University’s School of Social Service Administration, 969 E. 60th St.
