Regents approve $62.5MM TxSt Events Center (aka Strahan Fix)
The multi-use University Events Center will add about 81,000 gross square feet to the complex, as well as an additional 1,800 seats to Strahan’s capacity by building out the eastern side of the arena. Construction will begin February 2017, with completion expected by fall 2018.
Upon completion, Department of Athletics offices currently housed in Jowers will relocate to new facilities in the University Events Center. This will allow the consolidation of the Department of Health and Human Performance in the vacated Jowers space.
The project will expand athletic locker rooms, offices and support spaces for the men’s and women’s basketball teams, women’s volleyball, visiting teams and game officials. A new main entrance, pedestrian plaza, elevator, restrooms and concessions will upgrade the overall experience for guests.http://smmercury.com/2016/08/18/regents-give-final-approval-to-62-5m-events-center-at-texas-state/
