Choate Construction Company has been selected to construct Elon University’s Global Village project. Consisting of five residence halls and one amenities / student activities building, the phased construction will commence in late July 2012 with phased delivery dates in August 2013 and August 2014.
Totaling 249,416 SF, the residence halls will house 600 students. This innovative residential area will include a 30,000-SF commons building on the shore of Lake Mary Nell, containing the Isabella Cannon International Centre, classrooms, faculty offices, and ample study rooms and large gathering spaces.
Elon is transforming the residential experience and working toward a goal of having 75% of undergraduates living on campus. The Global Neighborhood will also offer several language learning communities, including La Casa de Español, La Maison Francaise, Japanese House, La Casa Italiana, and Deutsches Haus.
