Demolition of the Kissam Quadrangle continues this week as Vanderbilt makes way for the construction of College Halls. The two-year, $115 million project will include the razing of six existing dorms at the corner of West End and 21st Avenue South in favor of two large, state-of-the-art residential colleges connected by a light-filled central gathering and dining space.
