This five-story, 70,000-square-foot student recreation center was constructed for Arizona State University (ASU) in the heart of downtown Phoenix. The project was particularly important to ASU students, who voted to fund the construction through increased recreation fees. It includes an indoor track, rooftop swimming pool, large gymnasium, weight room, multi-purpose space, student lounge, bike co-op and locker rooms. The complex also houses Exercise and Wellness, an academic program in ASU’s School of Nutrition and Health Promotion.
