Arizona State University is celebrating the official grand opening of Lantana Hall — the university’s newest residence hall, which opened in fall 2020 on the Polytechnic campus.
The four-story, state-of-the-art facility, located on the north side of campus near Century Hall, not only provides 374 beds for the Polytechnic campus’ growing student population, it also contains about 8,500 square feet of academic space on the first floor, including two classrooms, multiple offices, conference rooms and lounge spaces conducive to a “live-learn” experience.
In line with ASU’s sustainability goals, Lantana Hall is on track to receive the highest certification from the U.S. Green Building Council: LEED Platinum. This would be ASU’s first LEED Platinum-certified residence hall. The 113,821-square-foot building was constructed using a wooden frame and a concrete podium hybrid system with a shell including accent metal paneling and fiber cement board. Seventy-five percent of the waste generated during this project was diverted to recycling facilities. The project was completed on time and under budget.
