Renovation and additions of the 15 story, iconic ASU dormitory. Manzanita Hall, built in 1967, is a 215,000 SF student residential building on the Tempe campus. Construction crews conducted the complicated process of renovating the building to remove obsolete building infrastructure and update building systems and spaces.

After the renovation, the facility accommodates 784 residents and 31 staff; the first floor contains a business center, fitness center, an updated lobby and new social spaces. The remaining 14 floors are devoted to dorm rooms.
