The new 87,000 SF building is constructed on what was Parking Lot 63, north of the Integrated Science Center. The building contains the new Worcester Commons, a ground-floor retail food café, the commercial bakery previously located at Hamden, and a restaurant. A “Neighborhood Center” of student spaces is also planned to include lounges, meeting rooms, a fitness center, a contemplative space, and music practice rooms. Support offices for Auxiliary Enterprises will also be included. The site around the building will include replacement of Lot 63 parking, loading spaces for the Worcester Commons, and outdoor gathering spaces.
