A few days earlier, construction crews “topped” the building, lowering the final roof support onto the square’s tower.
At 230,000 square feet, the five-story, $45 million project, located on the site of the former Allenwood Shopping Center, also will become main campus’s largest residence hall with 605 beds. It is scheduled to open in fall 2011.
