Some photos of the new additions to Maverik Stadium at USU.

The new building added around 40 luxury suites, all of which sold out (40k a suite), as well as around 700 clubs seats, which have also sold out (around 1300 per seat per year). The top floor included a new press box.

Additionally, a new super-large scoreboard was added, as well as renovated concessions and concourses.


Exterior. Big upgrade over before, still growing the grass out.



View from suites.

I don't know if it's the contrast but the east side stands look really run down compared to the west side

It's the old cement and the metal benches vs seats.

^Yeah, the eastside is the students mostly, the westside is the higher-paying season ticket holders. The eastside could use some upcoming renovations.

A couple other projects going on around campus. Seems construction has been non-stop for about 15 years now:


The USU Strength & Conditioning Center, next to Maverik Stadium.

The new USU Welcome Center, which also houses a USU Credit Union

http://www.utahprojects.info/Project...Welcome-Center

Near campus mixed-use building with residential and a popular eatery (Morty's Café)


New on-campus housing going up:

Sorenson Center for Clinical Excellence is under construction:

6-story residential project just outside of campus. Have yet to see a rendering for this though:

New hotel has been approved for downtown Logan. Doesn't look much better than the Hilton hotel built at the Junction in Ogden recently to be honest. But it's exciting for the downtown in the sense that nothing new has been built there in a long time (aside from city buildings). Maybe this can start momentum.

So this would be next to the city library I assume, where the good year is? I would expect Logan to force them to keep with the brick look the city has tried to go with along that part of main. Really if they do Hampton Inn stucco here it will screw with the look of the historic buildings across the street.

Now looking at the pic, there is brick but it's not the right color for that area. Everything is a darker red brick look. Plus the stucco color is wrong for the area, should be a white look to match the buildings it will be around. But it's right up on the curb which is great.

This is right across the street.


This is to the Southeast of the future hotel.



This is on the same block, West.

I like the brick shown in the Hampton rendering, but not the beige stucco area under the cornice, especially on the corner. Would be better if they followed the pattern of some of its neighbors. Doesn't have to be elaborate, just a little more appropriate element detailing.

This is Snake Person Tower, rising near USU. One of the larger (if not largest) residential projects I've seen go up in Cache Valley. I believe it's six floors high in some areas.

USU announces Life Sciences Building plans



http://news.hjnews.com/allaccess/usu...7aa1c46cc.html


Quote:
Later this month, Utah State University will break ground on a Life Sciences Building, a facility the school has wanted to build for years to address the problem of not having enough laboratory classroom space to meet student demand.

The ground breaking will be at 1 p.m. April 25, according to a USU news release that came out Monday. The building will be located in the spot of the former Peterson Agricultural Sciences Building, south of the Biology and Natural Resources building and north of Eccles Conference Center. That spot has been a grassy patch ever since the Peterson building was torn down after the Agricultural Sciences Building on the quad was erected in 2012.

The Life Sciences Building should be complete by January of 2019.

The USU Life Sciences Building is going to be 103,000 square feet, with a basement and four above-ground levels. It will house the department of biology, 13 teaching laboratories, a lecture hall, research laboratories and student study spaces.

also, did anyone else see that Vivint is partnering with Mercedes Benz to compete with Tesla with their residential batteries. That could mean more growth in the state.

USU's innovation campus is seeing a nice boom. In addition to the Vivint building mentioned, there's a new Space Dynamics Lab, and now another company has broken ground there:

Inovar breaks ground on new facility at USU Innovation Campus
By Kevin Opsahl staff writer Jun 12, 2017

Inovar has been located at its current headquarters at 1073 W. 1700 North, Logan, at least since the early 2000s and some 350 employees work there now, according to company officials.

The new Inovar facility, at 100,000-square-feet, will be able to keep up with the company’s growth of employees and meet the company’s customer demands in military, defense, aerospace and medical — fields Inovar produces circuit boards for. The new facility is expected to be complete in May of 2018.
