Certified LEED Gold

Torcon was a general contractor for a new six-story, 90,000 sq. ft. student center for Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City. The MacMahon Student Center provides a larger and more efficient space for the students to gather and enjoy many aspects of college life. Highlights of the facility include: Green Construction; Campus Store; Campus Ministry and Mission Office; Campus Radio Station; Student Activities, Government Offices and Meeting Facilities; Special Events Area with Flexible Space Configurations.

The design for the center was developed based on the input of students. Some highlights of the space include cozy living room areas, a coffee shop, spacious dining areas, fitness and game rooms, office space and more. The center will also serve the local community through The Duncan Family Sky Room, an event facility available for rent, which offers panoramic views and seating for up to 430 people. 

The center features dining facilities on the second and third floors, a fitness facility and game area complete with an Xbox gaming system and TVs on the fourth floor, and student activity rooms on the fifth floor where clubs can hold meetings; the sixth floor offers views of lower Manhattan across the Hudson.

The facility is LEED Gold Certified.
