The Emory Student Centre (ESC) at Emory University is beginning to take shape. As the building comes to life, hour-long student tours of the much-anticipated facility are taking place each Friday.
Duda Paine Architects out of North Carolina, designed the building and about a dozen specialized companies were subcontracted for the construction of the $98.6 million project, according to The Emory Wheel.
The ESC is divided into two primary sections: the north and south pavilions. The north pavilion will house a multi-purpose ballroom with a seating capacity of 1,600 people, while the south pavilion will be home to a student lounge area complete with games tables and a coffee shop.
The facility is expected to be fully operational by May of next year.
