Prospect House

Prospect House is on the south side of the Odd Quad and was original built in 1962 at a cost of $1,200,000 by the architectural firm Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson and Abbott.

It was renovated in 2004-05 with these costs:

Student Life Improvements: $2,000,000 
 Renovation: $5,100,000 
 Radio Station: $650,000 
Architect: Black River Design 
General Contractor: MLB

These renovations also removed the fabled Crows Nests, common rooms for just two doubles that used to span the width of two full rooms.

Prospect comprises Green Up in addition to eight other residential half-floors and a sweet basement with a sprawling common area and a space-age kitchen. The house has some great views of the area to the south of campus. Prospect Abs are a weeknightly ritual on the 4th floor (see the cross country team for details).

The floor plan is not up to scale. Some of the rooms are much smaller. Or so assumes Daniel Klein '06, but he may be trying to cover for his own inability to accurately compare room sizes in floor plans.
