A $147.4-million residential complex at North Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenues, where the University Services Building previously stood, will provide more than 1,000 student beds, student dining, retail space and a parking facility. The new facility will meet Temple's need for increased on-campus housing and serve as a dramatic southern gateway to Main Campus.
