MSU College of Business, site!
Montana State University has announced final site selection for the MSU College of Business building. Can you identify it?
“The north Wilson site is a great extension of our core of academic buildings and it will fit well into our plans to have a pedestrian-friendly campus,” MSU President Wade Cruzado said. “Additionally, nearly 1,400 students will live within one block of this building in neighboring residence halls.”
The north Wilson site had several advantages over the other two sites, offering more room than the Hamilton site and being more closely connected to the core of academic buildings on campus, Cruzado said.
With the site selected, the university can proceed with architectural design and preconstruction planning. However, the 2013 Montana Legislature still needs to approve final construction. With that approval, ground could be broken in spring 2013 with completion in 2015. The new College of Business building will be roughly 45,000 square feet, three stories tall and a minimum of LEED silver certified.
