The McCormick Road Houses renovations will be a multi-phase project beginning May 23, 2016 and finishing in May 2020. The project consists of six, 4-story residence hall buildings, including four at approximately 60,000 square feet, two at 30,000 square feet, and a 9-10 acre site with sidewalks, ramps and stairs connecting the buildings.
