The Proposed Project would also involve the construction of a new dining hall and Collegiate Center that would be shared by both Newing and Dickinson Colleges residential communities. The construction for the Proposed Project would occur in three phases. The proposed student residences each would contain six stories, including a lower level and three separate wings joined at 90 degree intersections. The Proposed Project would incorporate sustainable or green building design strategies leading to certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System®, and is expected to be designed to the LEED Silver rating level.
