Arizona Board of Regents
Winner of Best Public Project: McCord Hall
Finalist in Best Education Project: ASU Downtown Sun Devil Fitness Complex & McCord Hall
Finalist in Most Challenging Project: ASU Downtown Sun Devil Fitness Complex
Whether it’s bringing groundbreaking development to Arizona’s college campuses or facilitating adaptive reuses of existing structures, Arizona Board of Regents is behind many standout projects this year. ASU developed two modern fitness complexes in 2013 as well as the stunning new school for W. P. Carey graduate programs at McCord Hall. Looking forward, ASU will redevelop its Sun Devil Stadium, the College Avenue Commons (Block 12) project on its main campus and see the groundbreaking of its law center in downtown Phoenix as well as a redevelopment of the Annex along College Avenue north of the main campus. The University has the largest enrollment numbers in the nation and the aggressive development to match. That doesn’t mean University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University aren’t also aggressively developing. ABOR recently requested $1B from the state legislature for research development totalling 1,675,400 SF, which will include projects for all three universities.
