So far the construction effort has been progressing at a good rate. New dry-wall is completely in place as well as almost all of the paint for the four buildings set to be open in the fall of 2012. Bathrooms and kitchens are taking form as only ovens, fridges and running water need to be installed. All four buildings set to open in the fall are on schedule to be completely finished within the next few weeks.
What has really impressed me in the construction effort is the new paving that has taken place in the past week. At first I was skeptical about the accessibility the apartments would have to the rest of the campus. Over the past week two new walkways have been added allowing for fairly direct paths to the Degenstein Campus Center (Location of the Dining Hall) and academic row. In addition to the walkways, a road has been paved to connect the parking lot of the 18th Street Commons to the parking lot of the Science Building and North Hall.
Here are a few pictures:
