Officials unveil design for ASU's new law center

PHOENIX - Officials have unveiled the design for Arizona State University's planned Center for Law and Poverty.

The $129 million center is still awaiting final approval from the Arizona Board of Regents, but officials say construction could begin as early as summer 2014.

The center would serve as the new home for the university's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and would house a public law library and civic outreach center.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and ASU President Michael Crow unveiled the design Wednesday.

It boasts six stories and 260,000 square feet of space. It would occupy most of a city block in downtown Phoenix and would include two levels of underground parking.

Officials say with the center's location and architecture, it would serve as a community centerpiece.
