Columbia College Chicago Granted Building Permit for Student Center
Columbia College Chicago in Chicago, IL, recently was granted a building permit, and announced it is preparing to begin work on a new student center in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. The 114,000-square-foot facility, designed by Gensler, will fill a vacant lot.
The design for the new student center is centered on flexibility, including maker spaces, lofts, labs, and a fitness center and dining commons. The facility will feature a glass façade that allows occupants to look out and interact with the community surrounding it.
With a groundbreaking held this past November, the center is targeting a completion date of early 2019.
