Loyola University is actively seeking to close a stretch of Kenmore Ave., between Sheridan Rd. and Rosemont Ave. The block is already shut down due to construction in the area, and Loyola owns the vast majority of buildings on the portion of Kenmore in question.

The university’s long term plan is to create a targeted residential area for the campus, which would be fully landscaped and include benches as well as walkways. Two new dorms would be constructed, DiNobili Hall and San Francisco Hall. The new housing contributes to Loyola’s goal to provide on campus housing for 60-65 percent of students. A sustainable greenhouse are also included in the plan.

According to Loyola, “The Greenhouse will be used for the production of food that will supply a cafĂ© in the building.
