Arizona State plans $120m building in downtown Phoenix

Arizona State University’s plans to build a $120 million building in downtown Phoenix are a step closer to reality. A Phoenix city committee recommended to the city manager to negotiate contracts with ASU. ASU is asking the city to provide land for free for the first 10 years and to contribute $12 million to the project.
The city council must still approve the deal and the ASU Board of Regents will vote on it in December.
The law school hopes to start construction on the 250,000 to 300,000-square-foot facility in 2014 and open the new facility in 2016.

ASU will launch a fundraising campaign and expects to increase enrollment by 20 to 40 percent. However, the J.D program would not increase in size, and school officials are hopeful it will not impact their tuition. Instead, the school plans to increase graduate and online enrollment. The new center would also offer continuing education programs for attorneys.
