BUILDING THE NEXT VIRGINIA HALL BUILDERS ON TAPROOM BUILDINGS IN AUSTIN, TX.
APRIL 16: Construction of the Vanderbilt Hall, the tallest building in the University of Texas System, starts on a scaffolding crane in the courtyard of the M.I.T. Building.
Construction of a $1.9 billion, 1,700-room, five-story structure on the UT System’s campus in downtown Austin is on schedule, the university said.
The completion of the construction project is a milestone in the UT system’s efforts to build a new campus in Austin that will house UT System schools and colleges, and include the newest building in its UT System architecture, according to UT System President and CEO Bill Powers.
The UT system is now building a new building to house the new Vanderbilt Hall on campus, UT System Chancellor and UT System Board of Regents Chair Suzanne Hill said during a news conference at UT System headquarters Wednesday.
The building is expected to be completed in late 2019 or early 2020, and will have an estimated completion date of 2021.
UT System will pay $1,921,827 for the construction of the new building, which will be completed as a one-story, four-story building.
The Vanderbilt Hall will house the University’s largest lecture hall and lecture lounge, along with other campus facilities.
The university plans to open the building in 2021.
The structure is designed to accommodate a capacity of 1,500 people and will be constructed of limestone, brick and concrete.
The construction of UT System buildings has grown exponentially over the past decade as a result of the $3 billion UT System campus expansion program.
It is the third new UT System building in less than three years, following the construction on the newly renovated UT Building in Austin and the completion of a new, much larger building on campus.
