The renovation of Dowling Hall and Brady Hall stands as a transformative endeavor for the University of St. Thomas, redefining these historic structures for the future.
Dowling Hall, initially erected in 1958 with subsequent renovations in 1978 and vertical expansions in 1985, holds a rich history that merges seamlessly with modern advancements. Brady Hall, a seven-floor edifice established in 1967, complements Dowling, forming the nucleus of this project’s revitalization journey.
The construction journey was a meticulous and phased process, with Dowling Hall taking precedence in the initial phases. Upon completion of the total 198,000 SF, the university ushered in an era heralding the beginning of an exciting chapter that combines historic preservation with modernization, breathing new vitality into these cherished structures.
