HOUSTON – The University of Houston is undertaking a $35 million transformation project of its campus.
The project will include the development of a multipurpose gathering space, reconceptualized University Dr., and the addition of monumental gateways at university entrances.
Called the Centennial Plaza, the gathering space will be developed in the campus’ original quad and will have native shade trees, seating areas and low-maintenance planting at surround buildings.
The University Dr. entrance will have a new gateway monument at Spur 5 and a continuous line of trees to form a shade pathway to Cullen Performance Hall.
The project will also add sustainable landscaping, stormwater management, and new sidewalks, lighting, and irrigation.
The project is slated to be completed by 2027 in time for the campus’ centennial celebration.
