New architectural renderings of Lowell House released by the University on Wednesday offer a glimpse of plans for the House’s renovation.

The figure puts Harvard a little more than halfway towards its $450 million fundraising goal for the project, one of the key priorities of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences’ ongoing $2.5 billion capital campaign.

<p>Lowell is home to weekly tea parties, lovely Faculty Deans, and… towering cranes? Yep, by summer of 2017, Lowell will commence its renovation. With the project spanning a total of two years, freshmen can expect to spend their first year in Lowell and their subsequent two years in swing housing. How will this renovation project affect house life? While we don’t have any answers yet, future Lowellians can expect to at least spend a single really great year living within Lowell’s walls. </p>
