More About the Plaza Construction
For immediate release…
Tuesday – June 11, 2013
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Students returning to Northern Kentucky University in August will get a pleasant surprise when they see the progress of Phase II of the renovation of the university’s central plaza.
The project, scheduled to be completed in October, will transform the plaza area between NKU’s Fine Arts Center, Founders Hall, Steely Library and Landrum Academic Center, much like Phase I of the project transformed the other half of NKU’s central plaza last year. Old, deteriorated concrete will be removed and replaced with new paved pathways, beautiful gardens and many trees. Numerous niche seating areas are designed to facilitate communication, study and discussion in a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere.
A green roof planting area will be located next to Steely Library, above the university’s central receiving area, providing a quiet seating area overlooking lush greenery. An amphitheater will be constructed on the slope from the plaza-level entrance outside Corbett Theatre for outdoor theatrical performances, film screenings and other events.
The renovation will also include granite benches flanked by ground-level fountains, providing a serene and interesting meeting space. A special area honoring veterans is also planned.
“Each year, NKU becomes a more beautiful, relaxing campus,” said Ken Ramey, NKU vice president for administration and finance. “Our students reacted very positively to Phase I of the plaza renovation, and we’re confident that the reaction to Phase II will be even stronger. Crews are working tirelessly this summer to continue the campus transformation that began several years ago, and I want to thank everyone involved in this beautification effort.”
Walking access to the buildings near the project will be available when classes begin in August.
