The Arizona Board of Regents and the City of Phoenix have taken steps to advance the relocation of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law to downtown Phoenix.
Last week, ABOR approved Arizona State Universities capital improvement plan, which included ASU’s new-building planning.
In addition, the City of Phoenix authorized a land lease for the building and an investment of $12 million in the project. The new building, the Arizona Center for Law and Society, is scheduled to open in 2016.
Located on a square block bounded by First, Second, Taylor and Polk streets, the Arizona Center for Law and Society will join several other ASU colleges and schools downtown.
The City of Phoenix will invest $12 million in the project, which will consist of a 250,000 to 300,000 square foot building in which the College of Law will be the primary tenant.
