The Maryland Institute College of Art broke ground this month for The Commons II, a five-story $16.5 million residence hall on North Avenue near Mount Royal Avenue that will provide housing for 240 students in 80 apartments when it opens by the fall of 2013. The project will also include an auditorium, performance space and other amenities. The Commons II was designed by Hord Coplan Macht as an addition to The Commons, a 20 year-old residence hall that will get a $2 million renovation as part of the same project.
