Nearly a year after we began construction, the topping out was an important milestone for the 268,000-sq.-ft., $129 million facility.
Here are some photos from the June 9th topping out event:
The facility will hold its first classes in August 2016.
In addition to the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law spaces, the facility will also include the first-of-its-kind student law firm (run by recent graduates), a retail space on the first floor consisting of the bookstore and a café, and a two-level underground parking structure. The Ross-Blakely Law Library—currently housed in a separate building on the Tempe campus—will also be moved to the new facility.
You can watch the project as it progresses in real time here.
