Pennsylvania State University began construction in April of 2019 on the Donald P. Bellisario Media Center in University Park. Designed by Studios Architecture, the $43.5 million project includes the renovation of four floors in the existing Willard Building, which was originally built in 1949. Accommodating programs for the Bellisario College of Communications, the 63,131-sf media hub will feature open environments to encourage collaboration and creativity. Supported by a $100,000 donation, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation Open Team Space will promote multiplatform storytelling by enabling student reporters, photographers, videographers, writers, and designers to work together. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2020.
