This 178,000 8-story high rise law school is located in Downtown San Diego and LEED Gold Certified. The building is constructed over a 3-level subterranean parking garage. The project consists of a 40,000SF library, a 5,500 SF bookstore, 8 classrooms/lecture halls, a 3,000SF moot court room, as well as a 1,300SF boardroom in the building’s penthouse.
