When it opens in August 2012, the two-story Public Safety Building will contain office and support space for Towson University's Office of Public Safety, which includes the Police Department and the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. The 25,000 square foot building will be located east of General Services and is accessible via the new access road from Towsontown Boulevard.
The renovation of Newell and Richmond--the university's oldest residence halls--will include the complete restoration of the buildings' exteriors, interior renovations to increase the buildings' accessibility, and replacement of the buildings' aging mechanical and electrical systems. When the renovated buildings open in August 2012, they will house the same number of student beds, but feature an improved aesthetic and better accommodations.
This project includes the construction of a companion arena that will connect to the Towson Center. The addition will contain 5,000 seats, state-of-the-art video screens, entertainment suites/boxes and expanded lobbies. Construction on the approximately 90,000 square foot addition is slated to begin in the summer of 2011, with the building open in 2013. The Towson Center will remain open during construction.
