I was actually in the process of making a new thread for this project, like we had for Alta Phoenix, but then in the description on Concord's website, it still says it's a project intended to serve the population of students at ASU so I ended up putting it in here.

LOL, I know VLJohn hates the "which thread should this go in" comments but it just helps keep things focused and user friendly. The Concord site actually removed "private student housing" but does mentions students as the primary tenants. But it isn't an ASU or UofA construction project either way.

It seems like every other time we hear press about this project it is student housing, then it isn't. I think the location would appeal to plenty of non-students, so I hope they stick to student friendly plain ole apartments this time!

Pretty cool...I like the departure from the other ASU designs downtown, good to have some variety.

Guess not...the article states that construction will begin within the next couple of months and the construction schedule is "aggressive".

The UofA's new downtown Med School looks really nice. Looks like they took a cue from ASU's Nursing and Healthcare Innovation building and used lots of copper.

I wish they could seal the bright copper color somehow. The bright color is awesome, and i don't see it turning the cool green we think copper turns.

It takes about 20 years (under normal conditions) for a metal to patina like copper or bronze. Will take much longer in Phoenix since humidity remains very low for much of the year...

The new trend is to treat it so that this doesn't happen (or its happening is severely hampered).

Nothing really. Odd because they just had groundbreakings last week for Tempe, West, and Poly SRCs.

The Tempe one did? I know there is that expansion plan for the Tempe SRC, but I don't see any news reports of a groundbreaking or anything else about it really.

otherwise its impressive all the campuses are building new rec centers.

I think its more towards typical university and organization fashion poor timing towards the end of the semester and advertising.

Here's more on Tempe's SRC, West SRC, and Poly SRC (needs an update because that project is moving fast).

Was surprised to see a fence around the lot where the Arizona Cancer Center will be going up and some equipment already on the site. At first I thought it was a staging area for the Concord Eastridge project as it's directly acorss the street from that (east) but then saw a sign for it. For some reason I thought this was going to be somewhere further east and south.
