CHAMPAIGN -- A high-rise project on the UI campus won't be as big as planned. The site, on 6th and Green, was supposed to house two 12-story buildings, but the construction bid came in at almost $20 million.

Champaign's Planning Department says the project has to be cut in half, so each building may just be six-stories tall. They'll provide student housing, hotel rooms and retail.
