Hopefully the City will be able to get mitigation money from them to put in a mid-block crosswalk and signal across Brookline Ave since they (along with Simmons) are creating demand for their students to cross the street at unsafe locations.

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway



Theyre gonna have to amend that model of the Muddy River in the upper right! The trench looks totally dug out by this point, I know there's a lot of skepticism about the Army Corps' design skills but the daylighting of the Muddy is one of the most exciting projects around, in my book...

APPROVED!

The Board is very excited about this project. Emmanuel is hopeful that the dorms will be used year-round, as they could be used by other COF schools.

For good reason. There is no apparent reason this should not be built. Its a win on many issues ... AND ...the design is solid.

Thanks. I watched the entire nearly 5-hour livestream which went until 11:30 PM. Yesterday's meeting was a marathon due to the 1.5 hours of opposition for the Garden Garage.

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

"but not everyone is excited.

For one group of students, the razing of brick Julie Hall also means the loss of G12, a beloved suite passed down annually from seniors to underclassmen and filled with Disney decorations, Harry Potter memorabilia, and a Post-It note quote wall."

Good Grief!!! These students need to get over it!

I wonder if the excess rooms in the new dorm will be leased to Northeastern?

I doubt they are going to chain themselves to the radiators. They are just pointing out a tradition that will be lost. No harm in that.

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

They should talk to the administrators about setting aside a spare room in the new building to continue the tradition. It isn't rocket science. It's Communication 101.

Would they? Between the relative distance NU's own planned dorm projects would they commit to a lease? I was wondering if Wheelock or another CotF needed space...

This site is fence off and the landscaping is being removed. It looks like they're getting ready to demo the existing building.

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

I am not sure if this has been mentioned but for many years Julie Hall was leased to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital which used it for administrative offices. From the Emmanuel website:

"The 2000s saw dramatic growth and innovation, with enrollment tripling in the decade following the College's decision to become coeducational. During this period the College added new facilities including the Jean Yawkey Center (student center) and the Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center, and completed a major renovation of Julie Hall, which was reacquired from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in 2002."

You want to talk REALLY sad; they dug up the rec field between Revelle and Muir at UCSC in La Jolla. as in, DESTROYED... They're putting in God know's what. One of the most majestic Eucalyptus groves in California GONE for more buildings. When i was there, it was underutilized. That's 3/4 of what made it so awesome. You could just relax with the gf and hardly anyone was around. It was also a fantastic place for doing sprints between the big swell events at Black's. There's nothing on earth as wonderful as the smell of Eucalyptus.
