(From This project involved the demolition of an existing building at the corner of Green Lane and Morris Avenue with the replacement of a new five-story, 100,000 sf facility housing a Barnes and Noble branch on the ground floor. The second through the fourth floors house various academic classrooms and department offices during the academic year, but are designed with enough flexibility to be used as conference space when classes are not in session. The fifth floor houses the School of Design, including administrative offices and studio space. The roof of this new building accommodates outdoor event space, in addition to necessary mechanical support equipment.

Congratulations to the project team:

Owner: Kean University

Architect: Gensler
