Six years ago, Catholic University received zoning approval for a new campus plan. Now, design details have emerged for the new dining hall approved as part of that plan.

The proposed dining hall will sit on the current site of Magnar House, a student dormitory that will be demolished. The 33,000 square-foot, 50 foot-high hall will administer food services in addition to what is already offered at Pryzbyla Center. Kimmel Studio is the design architect.

The school is also applying to modify a portion of the plan to create a 144-space surface parking lot where a field has been approved and to relocate a planned service building with restrooms and event-day concessions. A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
