The new Rutgers Business School building, a skeleton of steel and concrete that only hints of the structure's dramatic design, already dominates the western end of the Livingston Campus.

The $85 million project is both an eye-catching sign of how this decades-old campus is evolving and an impressive reflection of Rutgers Business School's growing stature and deepening significance to the broader university community.

Marty Markowitz, senior associate dean of RBS's undergraduate program in New Brunswick, said anticipation on campus continues to grow as the construction progresses. For all of its architectural flair and state-of-the-art capabilities, the building also has a purpose to fulfill.

"We've been looking forward to it because it's going to allow us to consolidate the business school into one location," Markowitz said. "Hopefully, it will be something that will attract good students to New Jersey and keep good students in New Jersey."

When it is complete, the 143,000-square-foot building will house Rutgers Business School's New Brunswick operations — and growing presence on the campus. The structure is designed to accommodate the approximate 4,000 business school students and to support faculty with a mix of classrooms, offices and conference rooms. In September, 240 business classes — 170 of them will be undergraduate courses — are scheduled to be held inside.
