What is being built at the intersection of Airline Road and Daniel Avenue?

It is a large construction site.

It's where The Guildhall will be moving from its current location in Plano (which SMU sold recently) once the building is completed.

It's at the site of the former Daniel House for transfer students; they're constructing a housing facility for upperclassmen/graduate students to house 72 students.
