The residence hall will house the university's undergraduate honor students.

A former restaurant in Richmond, Va., has been torn down to make way for a Virginia Commonwealth University residence hall.

The new residence hall, on the site of what was Sally Bell's Kitchen, will house the university's honors students, who now live in a 177-bed residence hall across the street, reports Richmond BizSense.

The size and capacity of the residence hall hasn't been determined, but it is expected that it will accommodate more students than the existing residence hall. 

College officials said the new residence hall will address an increased demand for on-campus housing. It will also have office space, academic/teaching space, collaborative areas for group work and event space. 

Construction is expected to be completed in 2026. 

American Campus Communities is the developer.
