New Rochelle, NY United States

Project Description

Allison Hall embodies the transformation of Monroe College’s New Rochelle facilities from a string of renovated storefronts, to a campus with a uniquely identifiable presence, visible from the downtown business district. Through its siting and massing, this residence hall visually engages pedestrians on Main Street and motorists along this busy one-way thoroughfare, which is also U.S. Route One.The building’s tower element is cantilevered over the main entrance, creating a dramatic focal point both day and night. The new six-story, residence hall houses 200 students in 50 suites, and is located on the former parking lot of the Librett’s Hardware Store, adjacent to Milavec Hall, a building which was converted to office and classroom use by the College in 2002 and also designed by Doban Architecture. An efficient plan and fast-track construction pace made this building successful for the college in every respect. Close teamwork among the architect , college, and construction manager contributed to meeting the college’s ambitious 10-month construction schedule.
