Charles Commons Under Way

Like John Mellencamp would say,
walls came a-tumbling down last week on the future site of
Charles Commons, a mixed-use complex adjacent to the
Homewood campus that will feature student housing and a
full-service Barnes & Noble bookstore. Beginning a
two-month period of demolition, large excavating cranes
tore into the site's existing structures, including a
university-owned house and Ivy Hall on East 33rd Street and
the Homewood Garage on St. Paul Street. Foundation work on
Charles Commons will begin in late October. The facility is
scheduled for completion by summer 2006.
