241 feet is very, very tall for a seven story building. Where did you get the figure from?

Floor count may have changed... there was never a finalized floor count.

^^^ Hmmm. That's a bit disappointing actually. I like the two renders at the top of the thread a lot better. This looks rather generic.

Just looking at the quality I wonder if that isn't more of a site massing than an actual rendering.

None of these look like they are 241' tall, what exactly is being built?

The Engineering building, Gladfelter and Anderson Halls are all within the range 240 feet apparently. But who knows what is being built. There have been so many renders on this and none have been labeled official.

I think Gladfelter is only about 120'-130' its 11 floors with fairly low ceilings. The tallest building on campus is Wachman and its only a little over 200'. This building will probably wind up being ~120'. The 241' comes from the zoning variance which they got before they had final plans since the money was a last minute gift from the outgoing Rendell Administration.

Interesting, I was told Anderson is about 240 feet and the others are within feet of that height. I guess this was false information. The zoning board just approved a "footprint" of the tower. As far as I know the height was approximated to be 241 feet and the final render is not finished. So who knows

I snapped a few photos the other day, it looks like they're starting prep work on the SER building.



The small walkway and treed area in front of the engineering building have been cleared and they're bricking up the windows:





The sculpture has been removed and doors boarded up:



An overview of the sight. The jersey barrier with fencing extends to 12th and Polett Walk and goes down the length of Polett Walk to the tunnel under Anderson and Gladfelter.

Hopefully the green space added by the demolishing of Barton's Hall is done up right with some benchs and an open area where students can use for leisure activities or pick up games.
