Construction Update: March 11, 2016

The main superstructure for North and South colleges is in place, with stories complete and the roofs framed in all but the northwest corner of the site. Behind scaffolding, masonry teams add exterior brickwork and stone trim, while indoors, crews install mechanical and electrical systems. Work continues on the three towers.

  • The South College tower will rise eighty-seven feet above Prospect Street and house one of the duplex student suites. Visible here, the suite will feature a double-height common room with a balcony, an internal staircase, and seven single bedrooms. (Photo by Phil Handler)
