Campus groundbreakings: North Avenue Academic Building, Kean University

Also: University of Indianapolis' $28M Health Pavilion and Wabash College's new housing complex
University Business, July 2014
  • The 114,700-square-foot mixed-use North Avenue Academic Building will house Kean University's health and computer science programs
  • A four-story, $28 million facility for health care and wellness-related academic programs, the University of Indianapolis' Health Pavilion will also offer clinical services for the broader community.
  • This $15 million, 136-bed complex at Wabash College will include two 38-bed halls, two 16-bed lodges and two duplex-style townhomes with 12 beds each.

This six-story, 114,700-square-foot mixed-use building will house the health and computer science programs and serve as a campus gateway when it is completed in July 2015.

Funded by $36.9 million in state bonds, the facility was designed by Gruskin Group (N.J.), which also worked on the Green Lane building, a gateway to the opposite end of campus that has similar exterior finishes.

Health Pavilion, University of Indianapolis

A four-story, $28 million facility for health care and wellness-related academic programs, the Health Pavilion will also offer clinical services for the broader community.

The building, designed by CSO Architects (Indianapolis), will be a new gateway to the UIndy campus and a landmark for the University Heights neighborhood.

The 156,000-square-foot building is being constructed by local developer Strategic Capital Partners, which will lease space to the university. Faculty, students and healthcare professionals will collaborate on education and research there. The anticipated opening is August 2015.
