On Friday, March 22 the Virginia Commonwealth University Board of Visitors approved the ONE VCU master plan, which will guide the development of both the Monroe Park and MCV campuses.
VCU began working with Ayers Saint Gross, and architectural, planning and design firm in September 2017 to develop the plan. The plan — the product of 18 months of work and 176 interviews, presentations and public and stakeholder meetings — is organized around six guiding principles to support VCU’s Quest 2025: Together We Transform strategic plan and VCU Health’s Vision by Design strategic plan.
The plan calls for several updates and changes to both the Monroe Park and MCV Campus including the addition of new green spaces, the creation of a student commons and wellness building on Cary Street, consolidating adult outpatient clinics at VCU Health, parking updates, new student housing and much more. The full plan with all proposed and approved projects can be viewed on the ONE VCU master plan website.
