Phase:
Planned

Planning Strategy:
This new 65,000 GSF building will link to the south side of Steinberg Hall-Dietrich Hall. Four floors of academic and research space will include flat floor classrooms, group study rooms, research centers and shared conference rooms. On the ground level, a new enclosed loading dock and electrical substation will replace the existing surface loading dock and the existing substation, currently located in an underground vault. Woodland Walk will be restored from 36th to 37th Streets invoking the design intent of Ian McHarg’s original 1957 series of squares and walks. The project is planned to begin construction in Spring 2018 and be completed in summer 2020.
