I can confirm work has commenced on the soccer facility. This is very exciting!
I drove by yesterday and the evergreen bushes, "press box", and fence on the west side has been removed. There is also a construction fence around the complex.
Hoping to see an official announcement from OSU Athletics soon. Would love to see renderings. Does anyone have any other details?
The (soon-to-be-old) business building has a recently-extended lease on life. Parts of the engineering college will have their offices renovated soon and they need a temporary location from which to operate during the renovation period, so they'll be moving into the old business building. Thus, one should not expect the old business building to come down anytime soon.
On the subject of that ugly old power plant coming down...I can't wait. That thing is an eyesore.
