Kansas Senate panel puts brakes on KU Central District project


This concept drawing from Kansas University's 2014-2024 Master Plan shows "Innovation Way," the proposed redevelopment of KU's Central District where Stouffer Place Apartments were located. This drawing shows campus from a vantage point behind the residence halls on Daisy Hill, looking east at Irving Hill Road.

A Senate committee voted Monday to put the brakes on Kansas University’s $350 million Central District project, at least until lawmakers get more information about the plans, a move that Democrats say could damage the credit ratings of both KU and the state of Kansas.
