Description

The former surface parking lot 80 was transformed into a significant gateway at the northeastern approach to the University. The Great Meadow is defined by two buildings: The Smeal College of Business, the largest academic building at University Park; and The School of Forest Resources laboratory/classroom building.

The Great Meadow is sited across Park Road from the university’s arboretum.

Two additional components of the new sub-campus are the seven-level parking deck and the attached central chiller plant.
