A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Friday, September 16 at 10:00 a.m. to begin an annex project for the Delta Housing Complex at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB). The event will be held at the complex located at 1701 L.A. “Prexy” Davis drive on UAPB’s campus.
According to Director of Facilities Management Robert Wall, the annex will consist of a four-story structure housing 144 rooms that will be added to the existing building, creating a courtyard in the middle. The building will also house the residential life office and a police substation. The estimated cost of the project is $11 million.
