      New Complex in the works for University of Central Missouri

      Groundbreaking is scheduled for Tuesday on a $41 million student residence and retail complex.

      The University of Central Missouri is planning the largest construction project in its history.

      Groundbreaking is scheduled for Tuesday on a $41 million student residence and retail complex.

      It's part of $60 million of planned improvements on the Warrensburg campus. Elements include improvements to Audrey J. Walton Stadium and moving the school's general services operation to a former elementary school on the east side of campus.

      The project is expected to be completed by summer 2015.

      A university spokesman says demand for student housing has increased as enrollment surged, along with a requirement implemented last fall that all students live on campus their first two years.
