Construction update

Parts of campus have a new look

Claudia Nance Rollins Building
Faculty and students are settled in to the impressive new 195,000-square-foot expansion of the Rollins School of Public Health, which overlooks one of the schools public health partners, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Natural light streams in to the nine-floor structure that includes a 250-seat auditorium, instructional space and both dry and wet labs. Completion: May 2010

Longstreet-Means Residential Hall
Longstreet-Means Residence Hall is Emory’s newest freshman housing facility. The five-story, 351-bed hall is the third phase in Emory’s freshman housing complex and features a plumbing system that captures greywater – sink, bathing and laundry water – and reuses the filtered water in hall plumbing.  A 30 percent reduction in water consumption is expected. Completion: July 2010

Dowman Drive roundabout and streetscapes
The Dowman Drive roundabout is finished and provides a continuation of the Haygood Hopkins Gate and campus roadwork that was completed earlier in 2009. This second phase of work on Dowman Drive includes new sidewalks, curbs and landscaping in this well-travelled section of campus, while the scenic roundabout allows traffic to circulate smoothly. Look for a new visitor information booth in October. Completion: August 2010

The Complex
First built in 1958, a cluster of three residential halls known as the Complex received a significant renovation this summer. The expeditious and extensive renovation readied Smith, Harris and Thomas halls for incoming sophomores. Community bathrooms were gutted, fresh carpet and paint were added throughout the building; common areas were completely renovated and redecorated. Outside, a new entrance and sidewalks were installed and extensive landscaping added.  Completion: August 2010

Oxford Building
The Oxford Building is already proving to be a magnet for students, faculty and visitors. The new building houses Emory’s undergraduate admissions, a Barnes & Noble Collegiate Superstore, and a Starbucks coffee shop. Relax in the campus “living room” on the fourth floor and enjoy views of the Baker Woodlands and the scenic landscaped plaza, the Anne Register Jones Courtyard. Completion: June-July 2010

Emory Village roundabout begins construction
Construction began Aug. 11 on the long-awaited Emory Village roundabout and roadway project on North Decatur Road, outside Emory’s main campus entrance. The $2.1 million, 10-month DeKalb County project will improve the aesthetics, traffic flow and streetscapes on the heavily traveled North Decatur Road corridor between Clifton Road and the Lullwater Road roundabout. Parts of Oxford Road will also be affected. Completion: June 2011
