idk why this has to keep being said but I’ll type it yet again:
The University of Illinois announced a goal to increase C-U’s population to a quarter of a million by 2030. The University typically gets what it wants. These people need to live somewhere. It’s cheaper to build now than it will be to build then. It’s a sound investment. If the University hadn’t have made that declaration, many of the new housing projects would not have been started.
Can we please stop having this conversation? I’m tired.
