TCU Construction Updates

Discussion in 'Scott Nix Frog Fan Forum' started by TCUdirtbag, Jan 13, 2014.

  1. There was a couple pages about the renovations in the newest TCU Magazine. 
     
  2. Are those statues?!?!
     
  3. Mary Couts Burnett Library. West Facade under construction. Remaining construction begins May 2014. Completion for Fall 2015.

  4. I had science classes in Winton-Scott and 1 accounting course in Rogers (or whatever the b-school building was called), but those were the only times I ever crossed University (for school purposes) except to go to the Library.
     
    Humanities majors -- I think every course I ever took in the humanities had class meetings in either Reed or Sadler, or the music building.
     
    Different world for today's students.

  5. New Worth Hills Multi-Purpose Center. Construction begins May 2014. This is essentially a Student Center Light--dining, study space, lounges, meeting space, etc.

    Here you see a revised Worth Hills master plan rendering with the 2 new residence halls, currently under construction hall, 2 future dorms, future multi-purpose facility, future Greek houses, and future parking garage:

  7. Where's Iconoass?
     
  8.  
    Where he should be.  Elsewhere.
     
  9. When does construction on the Greek houses begin? Feels like it has been in the works forever.
     
  10. Lastly, updates on 2 academic buildings and 1 residence hall currently under construction and slated to open this fall:

    Rees-Jones Hall is an interdisciplinary academic building that will house Multi-use classrooms and the TCU Energy Institute. This is the east facade, as viewed from the front of Tandy:

    And here's an overhead image of Rees-Jones from 11/13:

    The Bass Hall expansion is connected to the north side of the existing Bass Hall. This is the new north side:

    This Upper Division Residence Hall is located in Worth Hills and will open this fall. This is the north facade:

  12. So you kids are getting another ward or two, a baseball field and an indoor basketball facility, complete with lights (finally)?
     
    Way to go!
     
  13. How much is all of this costing the university, and how much of it is funded with bonds?  This is amazing stuff
     
  14. How do we catch up to Baylor? LOL!

  15.  
    LOL
     
    Baylor only began thinking about upgrading their facilities long after TCU had completed much of its work. You may not have noticed but Drayton McLane Stadium is still miles away from completion and a majority of Baylor's student housing is reminiscent of old slasher films.
     
  16. Point. But tcu only started earlier to beat out North Texas in the "Most Yellow" competition.
