Abatement of University Hall, Onesty Hall and the Cage has begun. Those buildings will then be demolished. We expect construction of the Master Plan complex to begin in the summer of 2020.
A new Football Operations Center will be constructed along with a new Olympic Sports Center. The Master Plan also calls for the renovation of the McCue Center and the construction of three natural grass practice fields.
The facilities will include locker rooms, position rooms, team meeting rooms, coaches and staff offices as well as areas for strength and conditioning, sports medicine, sports nutrition, video operations and equipment. The Olympic Sports Center will also house UVA's Center for Citizen Leaders and Sports Ethics. This Master Plan will benefit all of UVA's 750 student-athletes competing across 27 varsity sports.
We expect to gain parking spaces in the athletics precinct once the Master Plan is complete. A University-wide parking study is underway and the athletics precinct will be included in this overall plan.
We are selecting a firm to implement abatement and demolition of University Hall, Onesty Hall and the Cage. The schedule will be determined by the selected firm. We anticipate demolition to begin in late fall of 2019.
Not of the building, but the last basketball court that was used in University Hall has been re-purposed in a number of ways:
Administrative offices will remain in the McCue Center. In addition, the Virginia Athletics Foundation and the athletics department's external relations units will be moved into McCue once football and our Olympic sport coaches move into new facilities.
