Per University of Iowa President Sally Mason:

“We will see the school of music site add two cranes this winter, one will be 240 feet high,” Lehnertz said. “That will be an obvious feature of the downtown and University area.”

Cranes already stand at the site of the new children’s hospital, Hancher Auditorium and along Grand Avenue where a new residence hall is being built. “We’ve never done this much building all at one time in our history,” said University of Iowa President Sally Mason. “It’s history making, it’s exciting and I think it says a lot about where we’re headed.”

It sounds like there's going to be an incredible hub bub of building activity ongoing in that area for the foreseeable future.
Other than that which would have been built anyway, what with the growth & prosperity of metro Iowa City, the repair & replacement of the $700 million in damage sustained by the university plant in the flood of 2008 is giving an almost once in a lifetime type of boost to large scale building projects.
