Parcel 18 Tour
Since Northeasternís President Aoun signed the American College &
University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), sustainability has
been a major theme in new construction projects around campus. Parcel
18, scheduled for completion in the summer of 2009, is one of these
projects. The largest tower is 22 stories and overlooks the other three
towers and a courtyard in the middle which will host native vegetation
surrounded by walkways for residents and visitors.
The courtyard rests above a new dining facility, similar in size to that
of Stetson East, that will feed the buildingís 1,200 occupants. The
most impressive feature of the project is that its incorporation of
recycled and local materials, a high performance building envelope, and
energy efficient systems set it on track for a LEED Gold rating, proving
Northeasternís dedication to environmental friendliness.
