Hoff Academic Quad photo update, 5/9/09, Part I

Part one of this construction tour of Xavier University's $115 million James E. Hoff Academic Quadrangle shows the new Williams College of Business building on the northeast corner of Dana Avenue and Ledgewood Drive, scheduled to open in 2010.

Part of a new 9.5-acre campus entrance that also includes a new Learning Commons and central utility plant, the four-story, 88,000-square-foot building will house the Center for Entrepreneurship; the Cintas Institute for Business Ethics; and the Center for Investment Research; new classrooms; a trading room; a data mining laboratory; and a studio for taping and reviewing sales presentations.

The building will be constructed to LEED Silver standards.

Shepley Bulfinch Richardson and Abbott are the project architects, and Messer Construction Co. is the construction contractor.

A second phase of the project, renovations to McDonald Library, Alter Hall and Schott Hall, will begin in 2010 and be completed in 2012.
