Three buildings on the Pentacrest will receive makeovers after the state Board of Regents voted in approval of the University of Iowa’s request to move forward with a project to modernize and restore the center of campus. The $88.7 million project will restore MacBride, MacLean, and Jessup Halls over the next 8 to 10 years.The project will begin with MacLean Hall and is projected to save the UI $30 million in deferred maintenance costs, a cost that likely would have risen to $44 million in five years.
