The campus is going-on 200 years old and there are hardly any big trees.  Fail. 

OU -- the state's most remote major university -- is actually its most urban and walkable.  And tons of big trees.

...those big trees are by the parts that are most similar to how they were originally. Of course there aren't going to be big trees yet in places like Campus Green, it was a parking lot 30 years ago. Give it time.

I actually really like the corridor between ERC and Rhodes. It feels very industrial and really appropriate for engineering. It's also very canyonesque which I like.

That's fair, I definitely do appreciate the narrowness of it, but having spent so much time in Rhodes I may just be very biased against that building!  :laugh:

Haha I can imagine. Rhodes didn't come out of an era of buildings that were pleasant to be in.

The renovation of the top floor of Rhodes was excellent, I do have to give the college credit for that. Hopefully they just do the rest of the building to match the quality of the upstairs room or even the refreshed lobby...

I like campus for all the reasons you pros can enunciate better than I can. But the new Linder? When I see the renderings, I think it would look at home in 1971 Queensgate.

And there are plenty of big trees across the street in Burnett Woods lol. I like UC's campus a lot.

^Here's the YouTube video that the UC Foundation posted:
&feature=youtu.be

I really dislike how the building seems to float above the street. At no point does it properly connect to the sidewalk. It seems like the only pedestrian access is up a small sidewalk next to the driveway entrance from Bellevue Ave. Along MLK, Eden, and Piedmont, the building doesn't even try to meet the street.

For as good of a job as UC did with West Campus, they can't figure out how to make East Campus into a pedestrian friendly place.

Yeah... and if you're walking to this new building from the west (Vontz Center), there will be no pedestrian entrance on the west side, so you'll have to walk all the way up to Bellevue Ave, then do a u-turn on the driveway and walk back half a block. Not cool!

Get a first look at UCís $87M renovation of Fifth Third Arena

Fifth Third Arena doesnít look much like the home of University of Cincinnati basketball right now. But thatís a good thing.

UC is in the midst of an $87 million renovation project thatís overhauling the 28-year-old arena. And even though itís mostly an enormous hole inside the arenaís surrounding structure right now, things are progressing on schedule. Thatís the word from Bryan Ramsey, project manager for the Skanska USA-Megen Construction team handling the project. Ramsey led a group of media members through the construction site Wednesday.

And of course all people can do is complain about is how they got rid of it.

College students assume that the university is getting rich off of parking passes and tickets.  Those $30 million parking garages have to pay for themselves somehow.

Just found this drone footage of the Sears Building demo from a while back. Compare the size of the street between the gas station and the site here, to the drone pic travis took in in the MLK exit form. Way bigger now, and probably the reason that later addition to the building was demolished and not renovated like the rest.
