Other pieces of this project include redeveloping 120Boylston, renovating the Majestic Theater and building an11-storybuilding behind the theater.


Rosen notes that the first two floors of the dorm building willfeature student service centers. A tournament-sized basketballcourt will be built below ground level. Upon this project'scompletion, Emerson will be able to house 47% of its undergraduatestudents, which are currently 2,826 people.
