That kind of expansion will put the number of the PME's applied science and engineering faculty at a level on par with the PSD and BSD, which will represent pretty significant departure from the University's traditional approach of research.
Indeed - the one proposal I am familiar with is 9 stories, 10 including the rooftop mechanical penthouse.
Don't be shy. Step into the light.
