Document Description
Phase 1 would demolish the existing Brandywine Dining Commons and Student Center in the existing Middle Earth student housing complex. A seven-story, approximately 240,000 gsf structure with 143,000 asf would be constructed on the 2.2 acre site. The lower two floors of the structure would include a dining hall, community facilities, and support and ancillary space. The top five floors would include 500 student beds within double and triple occupancy rooms and associated dormitory facilities. Approximately 10,000 asf outdoor space would be constructed for dining seating and a loading dock, and the adjacent existing Brandywine Service Road would be widened and lengthened to connect to Ring Road. Phase 2 would remodel the existing Pippin Commons from a dining facility to a recreation center.
