A birds' eye view of the proposed Olympic Sports Village that KU wants to build in an area bounded by Wagnon Student Athlete Center, Oliver Hall, Stouffer Place and 19th Street in Lawrence. The new construction and renovations to existing facilities would cost about $25 million.

Ahhh, all the hours I spent there while on the KU football team under Mason. Not a lot of great memories there, just as well they tear it all up.
I don't recognize the building to the SW of teh indoor football field.

This is first class and should be a catalyst in attracting high caliber student athletes!

I think that the Track Stadium should have more seating for the Relays and other major events (eg NCAAs). Therefore, why not do a mirror switch between the the practice soccer field/softball complex with the track as it appears that more seating could be squeezed in. This is a boost!

They couldn't throw in a few tennis courts or at least an upgrade with seating for the existing tennis courts?

the building to the southwest of the indoor facility is a daycare center. i think it's called "top of the hill" or "hilltop" daycare center
