LaSalle University will invest $35M in a new business school building. LaSalle's president says that the location of the building at the intersection of Wister and Chew avenues is itself a statement: "Putting another big building further up towards the west side of campus will be a real statement for LaSalle, I think, about its intentions, its confidence in the neighborhood".
The 78,000 sq ft building will include a 300 seat auditorium and a "corporate style boardroom". The building will also be fully wireless. Construction is estimated to finish in 2016.
