Video shows Kent State Renovation Plans

$211 million in renovation projects planned for main campus

The latest aerial, digital video commissioned by the Kent State University architect's office previews the more than $146 million in renovations planned for the Kent campus.

The video circles above campus to show the buildings that will be renovated and the new buildings that will rise for the architecture and technology schools.

An earlier video documented 100 years of construction on the Kent campus and was expanded to include the more than $100 million in downtown redevelopment projects.

It appears in the section highlighting the new school of architecture that Willow street becomes a dead end and no longer connects to Main street. Is this deliberate or is it a computer glitch?

Good question. Let me see if I can find an answer for you.

Michael Bruder in the Kent State architecture office said the dead-end of Willow Street in the video is a graphical error and not part of the Esplanade plans. I hope that answers your question.

Yes, indeed. Thank you.
