haha I know, but has there been much visible progress until recently? Since I'm in 'Funfax' for the majority of the time now, I'm blind to what's happening... especially with the RamCam being down!

Well the former Nursing School is just about gone. About 2-weeks after the site is cleared, the construction for Medical Science Phase II will be underway.

At least it'll be replaced by a handsome building, unlike what's planned for the West Hospital site. I had a notion to tinker with their design... make it stand out more. You can't replace a landmark with a ho-hum structure.

Oh and I do adore the new nursing school.

While at Baskervill's office, I noticed a rendering for a structure that is to replace the North Hospital. I do not know how outdated it is, but the replacement is obsolutely amazing. The rendering I saw was an oval shaped building with a glass facade and precast on the ends of the oval. The building appeared to be taller than the hospital next door. To top off the building, a metal clad crown would ring the top.

Is this rendering outdated? According to VCU's Master Plan, the North Hospital is to be eventually demolished to make way for the new Cancer Hospital.

Are you sure you're not referring to the WEST Hospital? Isn't the North Hospital that brown box on Marshall Street which is having the new bed hospital attached to its hip?

There are plans to demolish the art deco, 18-story West hospital on the corner of 12th and Broad and replace it.

According to VCU's Master Plan, the North Hospital (the ugly white tower) is to be demolished. The building at 12th and Broad is also going bye bye with the new School of Medicine.
