Central Development District

University of Kansas

To expand their growing campus, the University of Kansas selected the joint venture of Clark Construction and McCownGordon for their Central District Development. The university is utilizing a public-private-partnership (P3) delivery method with Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate as the developer for the design-build project. As part of this project, the team will provide construction services for the planned 40-acre site which will include a 285,000 square-foot academic integrated science facility, a 26,500 square-foot student union, 1,200 beds of student housing in three buildings, and approximately 2,000 parking spaces. The project also will include a central plant facility, a 595-space parking structure, and the necessary utility and transportation infrastructure to support the project.
