Who cares, it's got a Jimmy Johns, and that's all the kids need...

Seriously though, another highrise for C-U... good stuff...

^Already a JJ on this spot, so it nets out. And expected given they are HQ'd in Champaign.

Yes, I would love to see an update of Campustown if anyone has been by recently. So many new highrises/midrises that were completed in the last few years I imagine.

Opus Project at 4th and John Street

Hey all. UIUC student here. I had absolutely no idea there was a thread for the C-U area. I'd love to post occasional construction updates whenever I get the chance. If you guys have any requests let me know and I'll do my best to fulfill them .

In the meantime, here's a picture from late November of the Opus project Spyguy mentioned.

Thanks for all the updates, keep them coming.
It makes me sad that Everitt won’t be EE anymore. I spent so much time in that building.

A building over the Boneyard? That’s interesting. I thought the trend was to open it up and expand the floodplain. But I guess they can tunnel it in a few spots.
I’d appreciate seeing some shots of where the creek enters and leaves that site.

Wow that 308 1/2 Clark is awful... I can't imagine fitting four people wide in a room there.

Sad to see Kams go, what an institution!

Thank you ajradfotwo!

The Hub, wow. I would have loved a Target on Green street, would have shopped there all the time. About the only time I used my car was to get to Market Place mall, because taking the bus there sucked.

Is the ISR dining hall a rehab of the old one, or a complete rebuild? I used to work there back in the day.

Thanks for posting ajradfotwo! Nice tour, please keep up the updates.

I haven't been back to Champaign since about 2006, the amount of development is really amazing. Huge density increase. Some of those designs tho... wow. I know quality architecture is not a high priority for student housing developers, but man some of those things are really ugly.

From a skyline perspective, Champaign really hits above its weight as based on population. Probably has more taller buildings than larger cities like Peoria and maybe even Springfield, just that the skyline is fractured between downtown and Campustown.

^ I had an assignment in one of my planning classes almost a decade ago to come up with a redevelopment plan for that lot and funny enough it looked very similar to that rendering.
