Description
- Architect: Burt Hill Kosar Rittelmann Associates

- The building was initially proposed with 22 floors, but later lowered to 16 floors approved in July 2006 to lower the construction budget of the project.

- The structure will include seven floors of classroom and office space for the university, about 180,000 square feet, and nine floors, about 190,000 square feet, for parking.

- The building will have administrative suites and a rooftop garden and courtyard, but no residential quarters for students. Its signature feature will be an overhanging roof that resembles a graduation cap.

- Rather than have the building appear as a monolith, architects said they incorporated large vertical glass columns that run the length of the elevator shafts and make the building seem "see-through."
