No, I mean the campus building at 45th and Oak which appears to be a former residence.
That building from the BNIM plan is described as an academic building, not living. In the link, KCAI also says, "In early 2018, we will begin work to secure an architect for a second building dedicated entirely to our legendary first-year Foundation Program." I'm guessing that is what is shown in the BNIM plan.
Its really unfortunate that they feel the need to demo another lovely old building when they have the open lot at 44th and Oak (where another old home was torn down not too long ago). Not sure what the plans are for that lot.
If you look at the photo under "Design Exploration B", it appears the new living center will be going where Warwick curves, north of 45th St. It will go in a parking lot in front of 2 buildings, which I believe are the current dorms.
