Who cares, it's got a Jimmy Johns, and that's all the kids need...

Seriously though, another highrise for C-U... good stuff...

^Already a JJ on this spot, so it nets out. And expected given they are HQ'd in Champaign.

Yes, I would love to see an update of Campustown if anyone has been by recently. So many new highrises/midrises that were completed in the last few years I imagine.

Opus Project at 4th and John Street

Hey all. UIUC student here. I had absolutely no idea there was a thread for the C-U area. I'd love to post occasional construction updates whenever I get the chance. If you guys have any requests let me know and I'll do my best to fulfill them .

In the meantime, here's a picture from late November of the Opus project Spyguy mentioned.

What an amazing first post, kudos adjrafotwo!

I knew there was a lot of construction in CU, but I had no idea just how much was going on! This alum greatly appreciates the updates
