Northwestern University officials say they’ve selected a new site for a planned new building that’s to be part of the Kellogg School of Management.
The site announced today, adjacent to Kellogg’s Allen Center, will centralize management research and education activities, creating a unified, state-of-the-art presence on Northwestern’s Evanston campus, university officials said in a news release.
Northwestern and Kellogg officials earlier had designated a building site slightly farther north, but the current location, deemed optimal due to its proximity to the Allen Center, became available earlier this year.
“Following a thorough review of plans for the building, we’re excited to finalize this site, which offers breathtaking lakefront views and will be a destination for business and civic leaders from around the world,” said Kellogg Dean Sally Blount. “This site will unify our anchor campus in Evanston and serve as a foundation for our global network in the 21st century. The design process is underway, and we’re accelerating our fundraising efforts.”
The new building will include state-of-the-art classrooms, faculty offices, community gathering spaces, flexible learning environments and administrative offices.
