Smoothie King is now open in the Vanderbilt Student Recreation Center

The access point to the recreation center has moved a few yards west, closer to the outdoor running track.   This will be our new entrance throughout the construction project.

Patrons approaching the Rec Center from 25th Ave will be diverted from the existing sidewalk to a temporary boardwalk. The temporary boardwalk will be in place for several months while this project is completed.

Storage spaces are being built in the first and second floor corridors.   These are temporary spaces to store equipment displaced by construction on the east side of the center.

Construction barriers are being erected just inside the original access doors to the rec.  These walls will remain while construction in front of the rec continues.  The original entry will be restored when construction ends in this area.
