The Bulletin has the details on NC State’s new chancellor’s residence, which is planned for Centennial Campus, next to the Park Alumni Center. It would replace the home near the intersection of Pullen Road and Hillsborough Street, which has limited parking and lacks space for entertaining. The 8,500-square-foot home, financed by private gifts, is scheduled for completion by fall 2011. The Bulletin reports:
The new design calls for a two-story structure. The lower level — about 5,400 square feet — would be the “public” portion of the house, where larger receptions and other events would be held. The roughly 3,100-square-foot second floor would be the living quarters. Solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling are included in the design.
