Elements of the conceptual plan for Phase 2 of the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact evolution were presented to members of the UO Campus Planning Committee during their regular meeting on Oct. 12.
The current vision for building two in the second phase of the Knight Campus evolution is for a 175,000-square-foot, multi-story bioengineering and applied science research building to support additional research programs and facilities. The building is the centerpiece of the $225 million building project, slated for two acres along Riverfront Research Parkway. Phase two is made possible by a recently announced second $500 million gift from Penny and Phil Knight for the campus bearing their names.
The design reveal for building two is due in late spring/early summer of 2022. Construction is anticipated to start in 2023. Occupancy is currently expected in summer 2025.
