Demolition crews this week launched the first major facelift on Tangeman University Center in more than 30 years as the university entered a new phase of the MainStreet project. On Aug. 17, an excavator started gouging out the south wing of the building, exposing metal and concrete.
The end result will combine TUC's historic charm with a 90-foot atrium, theater, a 600-seat food court, high-tech sports and game lounge and 24-hour banking. The building's historic facade facing McMicken Hall, the clock tower, and the cupola will be preserved.
The building has been a campus landmark for more than 60 years, with its first expansion occurring in 1965. The current renovation will be done in stages with the completion date projected for autumn 2003.
