Penn State Reveals Architectural Renderings Of East And North Halls Renovations

After the first phase of the East and Pollock Halls renovations were approved by the Board of Trustees, architectural drawings of East Halls, North Halls, and Stuart Hall were released online — and they look pretty impressive.

Phase one of the East Halls renovations includes the construction of an unnamed hall in between Brumbaugh and Stuart and the renovation of Stuart Hall. The projected completion date for phase one is 2018.

In order to reduce costs, the renovations won’t change the infrastructure of the buildings, but will include new windows and new insulation. In addition, four to five individual bathrooms will replace communal bathrooms on every floor, similar to South Halls. Every hall will also receive work rooms, meditation rooms, knowledge stations, and full kitchens on the ground floor. The first round of renovations will cost $136 million.

Renovations made to Pollock Halls will mirror those made to East Halls. All of the renovations made to both residence halls are projected to conclude in 2028.

The renderings include depictions of the new buildings, the surrounding quads, and students participating in various activities:
