While a parking garage would be nice, I believe we'll be seeing a lot more shuttles from the River Campus parking up to the main campus before we see an actual parking structure built.

More interesting to me is the re-location of the Tennis Center and/or Physical Plant. The Tennis Center is on some prime real estate on the main campus... I could certainly see a new academic/administrative building being built on that site.

And I've heard that there were some ideas about converting the existing Physical Plant building into lab/maker space for the Engineering School, which would be pretty cool and would free up space in Shiley Hall for more classrooms.

That doesn't seem to be too hard. Spencer mentioned that we would be one of less than 5 schools in the nation to have their rowing facility on campus.

For some of us, especially Shadrach, the wait has been interminable...

Yes indeed DD it has been a long wait. Thanks for mentioning it. It's thrilling to be this close to finishing a project that was (and is) near and dear to my heart from the time when UP first acquired the land, cleaned it up, and began the process of beneficial redevelopment to serve the university and the community. When the first boat launches (soon I hope) UP will be one of only 2 university rowing teams on the West Coast to have access to navigable water from its campus. The other being the University of Washington. GO PILOTS!!!
