The new mixed-use building at 160 Massachusetts Avenue is the first completely new facility that the college constructed in over 60 years. The building offers 173 dormitory rooms, practice rooms and common areas, a fourth-floor roof terrace, a ten-studio music production facility below-grade, and a large performance space that features an impressive multi-story undulating curtain wall. SGH assisted the construction manager, Lee Kennedy Company, by providing building enclosure consulting services during the construction phase. William Rawn Associates was the architect of record.
