SOM Proposal SubmittedOctober 19th, 2009 | Category: Industry News
Yale is one step closer to starting construction on the new School of Management campus.Michael Morand ’87 DIV ’93, University associate vice president for New Haven and state affairs, submitted to the Board of Aldermen last Tuesday a proposal to start the construction.
Some community leaders said the proposed SOM campus – a modern structure with a glass facade – has been a subject of controversy. Jane Jervis, president of the Lincoln-Bradley Association, a coalition of neighborhood residents, said a proposed loading dock for the SOM campus could bring unwanted noise and debris to the adjacent homes on Bradley Street. She added that during the day, the light that reflects off the building’s glass surfaces will become a nuisance, and during the night, the lights in the building will disturb the neighborhood’s nighttime darkness.
