University to discuss new building at meeting

The University of Chicago will host a community meeting to discuss the North Campus Residence Hall and Dining Commons, the dorm replacing Pierce Hall.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at the Chicago Booth School of Business, room C25, 5807 S. Woodlawn Ave.
The new residence hall will be three buildings, designed by MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Jeanne Gang, and will occupy significantly more space than Pierce Tower. The new dorm will also occupy a parking lot and open field on the same block as Pierce Hall.

The meeting will have time for questions and answers and is open to the community.
