Work at Morningside
The university will replace the existing, aging building at Morningside with newer, purpose-built graduate student apartments which will provide more modern amenities for future Rice graduate student tenants, including more on-site, off-street parking.
A designer has not yet been selected for the project, so there are currently no plans for a new building, nor a schedule for the project’s construction. The previous tenants moved out at the conclusion of the most recent school year; in order to avoid having a vacant building which might potentially attract unwanted activities to the neighborhood. The demolition of the existing structure will begin mid-July.
