With the addition of Panther Village, the Department of Residence is also expecting an increased need for more seating and service at Redecker Center. To accommodate this need, the Redecker Expansion Project is set to begin at the end of the spring semester. The project has two phases. The first phase would expand Biscotti's convenience store and add approximately 75 seats in the Piazza. Phase I is expected to begin in the spring and be completed by January of 2013.
The second phase would provide additional seating (approximately 175 seats), expand Fresh Beginnings (the bakery/central commissary), and provide additional office support space. Phase II is expected to begin construction as soon as possible following Phase I.
