By NEAL BRUSS
A continuing scarcity of con-
struction funds may hamper the
University's building program as
the sesquicentennial celebration
continues, and to some extent,
dampens the surge of private
housing construction which has
characterized Ann Arbor in the
last several years.
The area's few major construc-
tion projects will provide more
high-rise structures for the soggy-
soiled Huron River bank town.
One block from the original 40
eacres of the University, now Cen-
tral Campus, the University is con-
structing a six-story administra-
tion building, and a Flint develop-
er is preparing a hulking 26-story
residential hotel, designated as not
for student occupancy.
While high-rises aren't prolif-
erating in Ann Arbor, they are not
being discouraged. But planners
in both the municipal and Uni-
versity administration have in-
creasingly been aware in the last
several years that towering struc-
tures imply -new traffic patterns
and parking facilities in a town
which was not constructed with
high-rises in mind.
The 26-story building will be
down Maynard St. from the ten-
story Maynard House and the Ad-
ministration Building. A block
away is the new high-rise Institute
for Social Research. Forseeably, a
row of high-rise buildings will
mark Maynard and Thompson.
Although architectural plans for
many University buildings have
been delayed by a tightening of
legislative capital outlay appro-

priations in the last several years,
sites have been named for most
On Central Campus:
0 A four-story Modern Lan-
guage Building consisting of class-
rooms for undergraduates and of-
fices for faculty will be built on
what is now a parking lot behind
Hill Auditorium. The site is
bounded by Ingalls, Thayer, and
* A Psychology Building is
planned for a site behind the cur-
rently-constructed Dental School,
n A site for the proposed Chem-
istry Building could favorably be
the one now occupied by Water-
man Gymnasium. However, de-
molition of the gym would create
a need for a similar structure,
which is not in planning.
* A new structure for the
School of Public Health will be
built on Washington Heights near
Observatory, facing the current
public health structure.
* The proposed University The-
atre is planned for construction
on Felch Park on Huron, near
the Rackham Building.
* The ten-story Graduate Li-
brary will be built behind the Gen-
eral Library on a site occupied
until last year by West Physics.
On North Campus:
* The College of Architecture
and Design will get new quarters
on a site on Huron Parkway be-
hind the cyclotron building.
* A four-story Highway Safety
Research Building has been plan-
ned for a site north of the archi-
tecture school on Huron Parkway.
* Engineering Building I and
related structures will be con-
structed on a central plain behind
North Campus Commons.
* A Library Services Building
has been. planned on an undesig-
The Medical Center continues
to develop in A cluster between
North and Central Campuses. Pro-
jects slated for the Medical Center
include a second Medical Sciences
Building, a 500-bed Hospital, an
Adult Psychiatric Hospital, and
a Clinical Care and Teaching
Several structures, like the Up-
john Center for Clinical Pharma-
cology in the Medical Center, will
be built through contributions to
the $55 M Fund.
Disneylands in the Centrat,
Medical, and Nortn Campuses will
not evolve out of tha University's
construction plans. Those plans
are neither sweeping nor well-de-
fined. In short, the facade of the
luture will be litt' different from
that of the present.
Much of the University's con-
struction will occur in existing
structures. The General Library,
the University Hospital, and other
long-used structures have been
slated for rennovation. The Uni-
versity has planned nearly $28
million in rennovation before 1972.
