As if Temple, Drexel and Penn weren’t busy enough, La Salle University has now announced its own big, new building: a 78,000-square-foot business school at Chew and Wister on its Germantown campus. The Inquirer calls the $35 million project La Salle’s contender “in what has become an arms race for the newest and best on Philadelphia campuses.”


Other recent projects or proposals: Drexel's LeBow Hall; Penn's Singh Center; a planned St. Joe's addition; and Temple's Morgan Hall.

Though zoning approval hasn't been secured, the plan calls for:

- 300-seat auditorium
- corporate-style boardroom
- sales training laboratory
- computer rooms
- simulation labs
- large atrium for social events
