WACO, TX-A $13.3-million project for parking, office and shell space has begun on the Baylor University campus. Work should wrap up by July 2003 in time for the building to open for Baylor’s fall semester.

The 403,000-sf, four-level structure is at University Parks Drive and Dutton Avenue in the northeast edge of the campus as part of the university’s plan to put parking facilities on the campus periphery. That, in turn, opens the interior campus to malls and foot traffic.

The structure also has been designed with architectural towers and spires to look more like an office building than a parking garage. Besides 1,195 parking spaces, the structure will have 19,000 sf of office space for Baylor’s Information Technology Services department and 9,000 sf of shell space.

The project’s architect and engineering firm is Carl Walker Inc. of Dallas. The St. Louis-based McCarthy Building Cos.’ Texas division is the general contractor.

Baylor also is erecting a 500,000-sf sciences building, museum center and 51,000-sf building for offices of the governing body of the campus’s fraternities and sororities. The construction is part of a 10-year program to move the school into the top tier of American universities.
