Trees Renewing Manufacturing Institute's Landscape

Once complete, the area will include over one hundred new trees, as well as a variety of hydrangea, ferns and new hardscape. While the project is being implemented, the north entry to the MaRC Building will be closed. Entry can be made by walking east along Ferst drive and entering on the adjacent side of the building, closest to Hemphill Avenue.
