HOUSTON - The University of Houston-Downtown has begun a $16.5 million project including a new four-story garage, with a top floor with offices for admissions, testing, veteran, disabled student and tutoring services, along with a new welcome center.

The 1960s-era garage on Girard St. near Travis, is being demolished to make way for the new project.

The glass-enclosed welcome center will serve as the main entry point to the university for all visitors, students and parents. It will include a theater for orientation before walking tours commence.

The project is expected to take 12-15 months to complete. Approximately 14,000 students are expected for the fall semester on the downtown campus.
