Summer has been busy at UC Riverside as new buildings continue to take shape.

Several major projects are nearing completion or have reached significant milestones.

They include:

•    The Dundee Residence Hall and Glasgow Dining Hall, which is expected to open this fall. The project consists of three buildings: a 51,000-square-foot, two-story dining facility; and two seven-story residence halls. The buildings are structurally complete.

•    The North District student housing complex, which will provide 1,500 beds in apartment-style units as part of a mixed-use development. The first phase is expected to be finished in 2021.

•    Plant Research 1, a 30,000-square-foot, two-story high-tech greenhouse space where researchers from different disciplines can work together in a climate-controlled environment. Construction is expected to be completed in November with the building open for use by January.

•    A new four-level parking structure at the east side of Parking Lot 13 that will provide 1,287 spaces — a net increase of 800 spaces — when it opens early next year.

•    The Student Success Center, a three-story, 60,000-square-foot building that will provide needed classroom and lecture hall space, is expected to be completed in late summer of 2021.
