1st Street Promenade

A conceptual plan for the First Street Promenade has been designed by Williams + Paddon Architects. The half-mile long corridor in the heart of the campus will be built in phases. The Student Services Center Plaza was completed in summer 2010, the BMU/Trinity Commons area was completed summer 2011, the Kendall Hall area will be constructed summer 2012, and the final segment will be completed with the new Arts & Humanities Building.
