MMC Holds Groundbreaking for Lowerre Family Terrace
Recently President Shaver gathered with Paul C. Lowerre ’81, his wife Ursula, and members of the MMC administration to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for Marymount Manhattan’s Lowerre Family Terrace. The rooftop terrace, set to be complete in the spring of 2008, will be a much-needed on campus place for students, faculty and staff to gather and participate in the MMC community.
The 5,000-square-foot rooftop will connect the third floors of the Nugent and Main buildings and will be accessible through the Shanahan Library. Featuring a glass water-wall and a large trellis with seating, the rooftop will be able to accommodate about 200 people at any time. It will be wheelchair-accessible and will include movable furniture, benches, a wooden deck, space heaters and Wi-Fi service for library or personal laptops.
