Northwestern University breaks ground on new facility for management school

Northwestern University has broken ground on its Evanston, Ill., campus for a five-story 410,000-square-foot home for its Kellogg School of Management. The university says the facility will include a two-story 6,600-square-foot-conservatory that will be able to accommodate 250 people for dinners or 350 people for speeches and presentations. The building has been designed so that lecture-style classrooms can be reconfigured into large seminar rooms and offices could become study rooms. The building is scheduled for completion in 2016. The architect is KPMB Architects.
