A New Skyline for Champaign

Have you ever wondered where those tall buildings in Campustown came from? We dug into this question and found answers that were a lot more interesting than we expected at first. Flooding, infrastructure, rising enrollment (especially of out-of-state students), zoning regulations, the 2008 single-family mortgage crisis, and global capital flows all play a role in the emergence in just the past 15 years of the new Campustown skyline.
