Temple University Plan For New Science Education and Research Building
Temple University received approval from the City Planning Commission to build a new science education and research building at 12th and Berks Streets. Temple's new science building will replace the obsolete Barton Hall. The demolition of that building will leave Temple room to create its first significant green space. The new building will contain 278,000 square feet of classroom space, lecture halls and laboratories and feature an atrium that will connect it to the college of engineering and the college of science and technology buildings. The hope is that the 241-foot structure will achieve LEED certification.
