UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Demolition is underway on a university dormitory. Crews spent Tuesday tearing down the 55-year old Forbes Hall.

 The demolition is part of an overhaul on the university's "six pack." It wants to make the area look more like a neighborhood. The new residence hall to be built in Forbes' place is expected to open in 2016.
