Cornell’s Statler Hall Renovation

December 10, 2013 // by Jason Henderson

Cornell University’s Statler Hall (School of Hotel Administration) will be undergoing a fitting $2.4 million modification project on the western-side of the building along East Avenue, where the current entrance vestibule will be replaced with a more modern-style entrance, which will match the recent renovations that have been completed on the eastern and southern sides: the Beck Center along the eastern side (Phase One Expansion), and the renovated auditorium tower on the southern side (Phase Two expansion). KSS Architects, the designers on this vestibule project completed both the Beck Center and the Tower Renovation, (the links go to some great pages on their site showcasing both projects). In addition to the vestibule, there will be some new additional floor space created on the second floor. The original Statler Hall was completed in 1949, and has been renovated several times before. There will also be some new landscaping (see north and south plazas in the presentation below) with benches, new pavers, and bike racks.
