I'd put money on 309 not being done until late Sept.Looks like the 309 might possibly be finished in time. I think the top 2 floors are unleased and will be finished during the semester. I wanna say that leases start the 21st or 22nd. I talked to a friend living there but I can't remember.
Yes, and I'd like to see the Colonial Pantry on Fourth and Green (where nothing good ever happens) eliminated and replaced with a real development.They (whoever they may be) need to make buildings like the Gameday shop and Jerusalem/Kinkos building in Campustown multi-storied, multi-function buildings. They are both great locations that have tons of potential but are both under utilized.

It's ARC, the Activities and Recreation Center. And there are four levels of things to do here: work out on cardio equipment, run around the new track, join a spinning class, even lounge in the sauna, on a couch in front of a flat screen TV or at the cafe.
After a $54 million face-lift, you could say a radical one, the new building officially opens on the University of Illinois' move-in day, Aug. 21.
The campus building, which first opened in 1971, has gone from roughly 210,000 to 340,000 square feet. Administrators have called the project an expansion and renovation.
"We've basically gone up and out," said Jayne DeLuce, an associate director at the UI Division of Campus Recreation.
Under construction since March 2006, the building's previously renovated east wing remained opened with basketball courts and a small fitness center. That area is called Gym 1, and it contains five basketball courts and a multi-activity area.

309 E. Green St
A 24-story tower going up on the site of a former Burger King restaurant, hence its nickname, the “Whopper.” Developers are trying to get a partial-occupancy permit by Sept. 5 for the first 16 floors, which include seven levels of parking, a multipurpose level and eight residential floors. The upper floors won’t be ready until January.
An 18-story, 259-unit loft-apartment development at the former site of Burnham Hospital at Springfield Avenue and Third Street in Champaign. The building was two-thirds leased, but developers announced last month they would postpone move-in until it can be finished in mid-October, rather than attempting partial occupancy now. Tenants were sent to three other apartment buildings and will be compensated for the inconvenience, said Theresa Kamerer, property manager for Burnham 310.
The McKinley Foundation’s seven-story residence hall near Fifth and John streets in Champaign opened today, about a week late. It failed inspections on Friday but received a conditional occupancy permit this week allowing students to move in while non-critical inspection items are addressed, officials said. McKinley found accommodations for a handful of international students who’d planned to move in Sunday, but most students simply delayed their arrival until today, officials said.
54 E. Chalmers, C
A five-story apartment building. Garry Bowman, building safety supervisor for the city of Champaign, said developers must finish installing exterior blocks before students can move in, but delivery of the material was delayed.
A fifth project, an expansion of Newman Hall, passed final inspection a week late but is ready for occupancy, Bowman said.
