The University of Pennsylvania is planning to expand its student and alumni network with the construction of an 11-story residential tower.
The tower, dubbed Penn Manor, will be the university’s first residential campus in North America.
Penn Manor will house approximately 2,200 students.
It will be designed by the firm of McBride & Co., with design work beginning this spring.
The tower will be one of the tallest residential towers in the U.S.
Penn Manor is slated to open in 2019, and the university is looking to attract more students to its campus by creating new student housing.
