New Construction in the Alderman Road Area

There are currently three new buildings under construction in the Alderman Road Area of first year housing.  These buildings include two residence halls that will be 6 stories tall and house over 200 students each. In between these halls there will also be a 1 story community building.  This building will provide a larger group meeting/gathering space for the students living in the complex.  These buildings are the 2nd phase of the project to replace the suite style buildings that were constructed during the late ’60s and early 70’s.  (These buildings are still commonly referred to by students as the “New Dorms”.  Traditions are hard to change here…)  These buildings will be similar to Kellogg House, the first phase of the project, which opened in 2008.  These buildings will be finished in May, 2011 and will become part of first year housing for the Fall Semester that year.  For more comprehensive information about the project and the schedule for future demolition and construction, please go to the Housing Division web page.   This is a very exciting step forward.  The students that have lived in Kellogg these past two years have been very happy with the facility and its amenities.  These buildings also have some of the best views of the Grounds and the city of Charlottesville.
