These stations serve a variety of menu items (including comfort food, international cuisine, vegetarian and allergen-free options) and feature exhibition cooking and small-batch production in order to promote freshness and quality food practices. The building also houses 4,000 sf of offices and administration space.

The form of the building is articulated with an exterior palette of brick, granite, cast stone, metal panels and glass, complementing the existing campus architecture.

A 70-foot rotunda element provides a recognizable icon visible from Georgia Quad to the east, while an entrance facing Tanyard Creek allows easy access from the campus high-rise district to the west.
