RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ7) The skyline of Radford University's campus may soon change. New renderings of the proposed Center for Adaptive Innovation and Creativity show a massive, modern building parallel to East Main Street in Radford.

Lawmakers introduced a four million dollar request to begin the planning phase for a new building on campus.

It will be used for health education and interdisciplinary research, among other departments and programs.

"This will allow us to bring all of our academic programs up to the most modern classrooms that are adaptable for not only how classes are instructed today but really how their instruction is envisioned for the future," said Joe Carpenter, the Vice President of University Relations and the Chief Communications Officer for Radford University.

The proposed Center would replace the current Porterfield and McGuffey Halls that are 50 to 60 years old.

The new 200,000 square foot building would cost about 79 million dollars.
