Hives for Minds

The LEED-Platinum Charles David Keeling Apartments by KieranTimberlake for the University of California, San Diego, is named for the Scripps Institute scientist whose “Keeling Curve” first described anthropogenic climate change through greenhouse-gas emissions—that is, global warming.

The Erdy McHenry–designed Grove at Cira Centre South will occupy a former U.S. Post Office Annex site land-leased from Penn.

Erdy McHenry Architecture’s Radian Apartments project occupies land owned by Penn, but looks neither like a university development nor like other West Philadelphia mixed-use developments.

When the project is completed, the New College House by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson will be the first new housing built for the University of Pennsylvania’s College House system since its beginnings in the late 1990s. The Wilkes-Barre, Penn.–based architects’ project will cost an estimated $100 million and create 350 new beds.
