Case Western Reserve University is planning to construct two residence halls on its south campus in Cleveland.
The two residence halls would add about 600 beds to address the university's growing enrollment, reports Cleveland.com. They will be used for second-year students, who now are divided among several locations.
Murray Building, will be a five-story 56,900-square-foot structure. Hill Building, will be a six-story, 139,000-square-foot facility and will sit southeast of the Murray Building. A courtyard between the buildings will serve as a reading and wellness garden.
The residence halls will be constructed on a parking lot between the Fribley Commons dining hall and the area where the university’s fraternities and sororities have houses.
The university said the new residence halls are designed in the mold of the newly renovated Fribley Commons.
The university is seeking approval from the city's Landmarks Commission before construction can begin.
If approved, construction could be complete by 2024.
