Auburn House Restoration
ESTIMATED COMPLETION: FALL 2017
TU is restoring the Auburn House to improve code compliance and accessibility for campus events. The project will include the installation of an elevator to provide ADA access to the building’s basement and second level; the addition of ADA-compliant bathrooms on the main, second and basement levels; the installation of a sprinkler system to bring the building in line with fire codes; and the addition of an HVAC system to enable the Auburn Pavilion to be used year-round.
Cross Campus Drive Roadwork (BGE project)
Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. (BGE) is doing work on Cross Campus Drive for a countywide project to improve the reliability of local power service. Throughout the spring, BGE crews will bore small holes in the roadway and use the holes to feed electrical cables underground, where they are less susceptible to weather and traffic accidents.
The Glen bridge is closed until further notice. The university is currently reviewing project design options and costs.
Estimated completion: fall 2017
This project will nearly double the size of Burdick Hall with a 94,000 square foot addition which will include two multi-purpose athletic courts, an indoor running track, a mind and body studio for yoga and Pilates classes, a dedicated cycling studio and a combat studio. An accompanying 8,000 square foot renovation will update existing offices and the mezzanine level of the existing fitness center. Construction will elevate the grounds on the south side of Burdick, completing the pedestrian walkway that extends from the West Village to York Road.
Residence Tower Renovation
ESTIMATED COMPLETION: January 2018
The project will completely reconstruct the 44-year-old Residence Tower from the inside out. The two lower levels will be transformed into community space, with a large kitchen, a game room and common areas in a loft-like setting overlooking the building’s main entrance. The upper floors will be fully renovated with new bathrooms and room layouts, as well as enclosed study spaces and open community lounges. The exterior façade will be covered with large architectural panels in various brick tones. New windows and glass will make the rooms brighter and the building more interactive with the campus landscape.
Towsontown Boulevard Roadwork (County project)
Baltimore County is widening Towsontown Boulevard and updating utilities under the existing road. The project will create a double left-turn lane from Towsontown Boulevard on to Osler Drive to improve traffic flow. There will be intermittent lane closures from spring 2017 through 2018 as work is being performed.
