Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management may be relocating to one of the most spectacular locations on the Evanston lakefront campus, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.
The vacant site of the Lindheimer Observatory, demolished in 1995, is the leading contender in the business school’s plans for a new home base and would give future MBA students several hundred feet of waterfront as well as a view of the Chicago skyline, the article says.
The building plan stems from a $250 million capital campaign in its early stages, which is scheduled to wrap up in 2013 or 2014, according to Kellogg Dean Dipak Jain. But, the school says this is just one of the new locations under consideration.
“The site has not yet been determined,” said spokesman Alan Cubbage. “We don’t know timing, cost or any of those sorts of things.”
