Tulane Business School to Expand With Pelli Clarke Pelli-Designed, LEED Gold Certified Building

The building will include a "sweeping three-story atrium"

Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business is expanding, and with that will come a new, modern-minded building designed by a well-known architecture firm.

The university announced this week that it will be constructing a 45,000 square-foot, four-story addition that will unify the business school's current two-building footprint into one structure called the Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex.

International architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, which designed the award-winning St. Katharine Drexel Chapel at Xavier University in New Orleans, is the firm behind this building, which aims to achieve LEED Gold certification. The building will include a "sweeping three-story atrium" and additional space for faculty and the school's growing student body.

Construction will begin in May and is expected to be complete by January 2018.
