Northwestern selects site for new Kellogg building
Timing, design will depend upon fundraising efforts, which are now underway
11/11/2009 - Northwestern University plans to construct a building on the lakefront of its Evanston campus as a new home for the University's renowned Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern President Morton Schapiro and Sunil Chopra, interim dean of Kellogg, announced today (Nov. 11, 2009). The new facility will be located on the northeast corner of Northwestern's lakefront campus, immediately adjacent to Lake Michigan on two sides.
Timing for the design and construction of the new building will depend on fundraising efforts, which are now underway.
The new building will include classrooms, faculty offices, collaborative learning spaces and administrative offices. Because of its location, it will feature spectacular views of the lake, the Chicago skyline to the south and the North Shore to the north.
"This will be an outstanding new home for Kellogg in a wonderful location on campus," Chopra said. "The new facility will enable Kellogg to provide state-of-the-art teaching facilities, additional amenities for our students and office space for our faculty."
"Kellogg is one of Northwestern's flagship programs, so it is appropriate that one of the premier locations on campus will be dedicated to Kellogg's new building," said President Schapiro. "This will be a wonderful addition to our Evanston campus."
