Around Campus

Campus construction updates now online
Emory has a new Web site dedicated to providing updates on construction and other campus improvement projects at Emory.

The Web site, www.construction.emory.edu, was created to explain the significant changes that are occurring on Emory’s campus as the University implements its Master Plan. The campus improvements will provide additional academic and residential space, and will occur over the next several years.

The construction Web site and its campus maps, designed and maintained by Campus Services, will accomplish several goals. The site will provide a timely synopsis of current projects that may cause inconvenience to faculty, staff, students and visitors at Emory. These updates will be added to the construction home page on a weekly basis. Emory audiences can review this site and plan accordingly.
The Web site will also allow faculty, staff and students to review key points regarding new buildings on campus that are currently under construction, and find basic information regarding planned buildings and improvements on campus.

DeKalb County approves Emory’s mixed-use project
By unanimous vote, the DeKalb County Commission on July 10 approved the rezoning required for Emory’s mixed-use project. The development, which is a joint endeavor with Cousins Properties Inc., will include 15 acres of retail and residences across from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Clifton Road. It will be DeKalb County’s first project under a new zoning classification designed to support pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use communities.

Look for more information about this project in upcoming issues of Emory Report.
