Photos: Design of ASU's Proposed 260,000-Square-Foot Home for Law School in Phoenix

Arizona State University and the city of Phoenix showed off the design of a proposed 260,000-square-foot home for the ASU law school.

The $129 million center, which still needs final approval from the Arizona Board of Regents, is scheduled to open in 2016.

According to a city press release:

The proposed six-story, 260,000-square-foot facility, would occupy most of the city-controlled block bordered by Taylor, Polk, First and Second streets in downtown Phoenix. It will include two levels of underground parking and direct ground-level access to public sidewalks and plazas.

The plot, the former site of a Ramada Inn/Sahara Motor Inn, was purchased by the city a few years ago for about $6 million, with the purpose of helping ASU expand its downtown campus.

It will be called the "Arizona Center for Law and Society."

According to the city's press release, the city council approved using $12 million from the city's Downtown Community Reinvestment Fund to help finance the project in December.
