On Earth Day, the Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing project gained a set of new bicycle shelters at the Lewis Lot, south of Pound Hall.
There are 26 bicycle racks within the two enclosures. Additionally, four new bicycle racks have now been added under the Pound Hall overhang facing Lewis International Law Center, and three new bicycle racks now sit under the Holmes Hall west entrance. All the bicycle racks are ready for use.
The Law School is working with a sustainability consultant for the WCC project and is on target to receive LEED gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Read “The greening of the Law School” for more details on green initiatives at HLS.
The WCC project began in June 2007, and will house three centers. Wasserstein Hall, bordering Massachusetts Avenue, will be an academic center with a range of classrooms and other learning spaces. The Caspersen Student Center, adjacent to Harkness Commons, will be a central gathering place for students and will serve as a home for student organizations, journals, and social activities. The Clinical Wing, on the Everett Street side of the site, will house the School's expanding clinical programs. The project is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2011.
