Train Station Walkway Project

The University's Train Station Walkway Project will create a significantly enhanced gateway from the Arrow Line Train Station to the University's Performing Arts complex, and toward the remainder of the campus.

Partnering with KAR Construction, this project will add a beautiful walkway, plaza, steps-to-greenbelt plaza area, and additional social gathering spaces.

6/21/2024 Status Update:

The train Station Plaza now has most of its new landscape architecture elements in place, including trees and sustainable plants consistent with our region. Additionally, the permeable pavers that will accentuate the Plaza walkway are nearly complete for the area that progresses along and around Loews Theater.

Finally, the terrace steps are in place, and the next elements for the plaza and upper terrace will include the walkway, the customized pavers, and the finishing of the west side wall that will now provide a fully defined approach to the Plaza as passengers of the Arrow Rail Line step off.

Campus Solar Covered Parking Energy Project

The University of Redlands began preliminary construction activity for a Solar Covered Parking Energy project.

The selected company to build this energy-producing system is McKinstry, an industry leader in Solar energy design and construction.

For our University, McKinstry will construct Solar energy-producing covered parking canopies in two phases, and at two locations.  The first phase and location will be located in the East Lot, near the corner of Grove Street and Colton Avenue.  This phase is expected to be completed by September 30th, 2024.  Phase 2, which will begin construction during the summer of 2024, is planned to be completed by June 30th, 2025.

When both phases are completed, the university will be producing more than 1.5 Megawatts of energy daily; add as many as 10 new EV charging stations; and add additional energy in the form of battery storage.

5/15/24 Status Update: After a very successful Project Launch event on April 15th, the University’s Solar Energy Project has advanced to the final permitting review stages with Southern California Edison (SCE) and remains on track to begin construction in a few weeks. When it does, Phase I will begin with the building of a solar canopy in the East Parking Lot, which is planned to be online and generating power in this fall.
