This four level building features a coffee shop, convenience store, game room, TV room, and computer lab. It also includes a 300-seat central dining facility, a state-of-the-art performance kitchen, an outdoor patio with seating, and a rooftop terrace.
The all-glass window wall of the commons and central atrium opens onto a lawn area and outdoor amphitheater that creates additional gathering, entertainment, and study space.
