CAVC Grand Opening
After 20 months of construction, the College Avenue Commons (CAVC) opened its doors in celebration on September 3, 2014. Donors, faculty, alumni, students, architects, builders, campus dignitaries and many others gathered for the unveiling of the most sophisticated and green building of all of ASU’s campuses.
The CAVC was complete with 5 stories and 137,000 square feet of teaching, retail and social space which includes many intricate architectural features, such as a dual outdoor floating staircase with a fountain flowing between the stairs, a roof patio above the auditorium, modern, angular furnishings and fixtures, and even electrical conduit runs which envy fine art.
ASU President Michael M. Crow spoke at the grand opening to a crowd of over 250 people, many of whom were major stakeholders in bringing the CAVC to fruition.
