Site prep and caisson work is now visible for a new five-story educational building at 900 W Taylor Street, located near the southern edge of The University of Illinois Chicago‘s main campus. Known as the UIC Computer Design Research and Learning Center (CDRLC), the new 135,000-square-foot facility will cling to an existing mid-century building that houses various engineering departments and research centers.
Research and Learning Center
Earlier this month, a ceremonial groundbreaking was held for a planned five-story educational building, located at 900 W Taylor Street at The University of Illinois Chicago‘s main campus. Officially known as the UIC Computer Design, Research and Learning Center, the project’s footprint will replace a former parking lot, while attaching to the existing Engineering Research Facility. At 135,000 square feet, this new addition will provide students and faculty with 15 classrooms, 35 labs, and supplementary spaces such as student affairs offices and an undergraduate learning and community center.
