The college’s planned $11 million dorm will provide an additional 208 beds, as well as another landmark framing the campus quadrangle. College President Denny Griffith said work should begin in mid-May.
In addition to containing 56 apartments, the five-story, 82,000-square-foot building will have reception and lobby space, a lounge, a laundry room and a student fitness center on the first floor.
About 9,000 square feet is to be reserved along Cleveland Avenue for retail space, which Griffith hopes will attract restaurant operators.
