Illinois University's Master Plan Estimated to Cost $1.2B

Nov 10, 2017

University of Illinois officials say that a proposed $1.2 billion master plan that provides a flexible blueprint for future campus growth and development isn't unrealistic given the university's donor base and track record.

Projects included in the plan are the $170 million renovation of State Farm Center, the $121 million renovation of Memorial Stadium, the $90 million Electrical and Computer Engineering Building, and three new residence halls that are estimated to cost about $75 million each. 

Mary Jukuri is the campus planner for the consulting firm SmithGroupJJR. She says a full detailed report will be available online once it's been approved by trustees.

The board is scheduled to meet in Chicago next week.
