Work progressing at Xavier's Hoff site

Work is progressing on Xavier University's Hoff Academic Quad project at Dana Avenue and Ledgewood Drive.

Mass excavation for the Williams College of Business has been completed, with drilled piers nearing completion and foundation work underway.

Foundation work will continue through March.

Earth shoring is being installed behind McDonald Library and work on drilled piers underway, allowing for excavation work for the Learning Commons to proceed in earnest.

The university also reports that Duke Energy is on site relocating public utilities and that work on a utility tunnel, planned to run from the new Central Utility Plant to an area near the Learning Commons, has begun.

The project, which will also include renovations to Alter Hall and University Library, greenspace, and parking, is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2010.

Also, parking for Xavier events is now available at the Norwood Plaza on the site of the old Kroger store.

The store was demolished last month, and fill dirt from the Hoff site was used to create a gravel walkway that connects to the northeast side of the Cintas Center parking lot.
