The University of Arizona recently broke ground on the new home for the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine, part of the College of Medicine–Tucson. The 30,000-sq-ft facility will include three buildings surrounded by desert gardens and linked by a series of pathways. It was designed to embody the center’s ethos of whole-person wellness and the principles of integrative health. Line and Space LLC of Tucson is the architect, and the project is being built by DPR Construction. Construction began in May 2022 and is expected to be complete in late 2023.

63 Las Vegas and PENTA Building Group topped off in late April the multilevel retail development located within the mixed-use City Center campus at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue on the Las Vegas Strip. The complex offers more than 243,000 gross sq ft of space comprised of flagship retail and restaurants. The center also will feature a 6,000-sq-ft LED digital display screen atop the upper level. The screen will complement the existing 18,000-sq-ft display at Harmon Corner Marketplace, located directly across the Strip. This will create a high impact opportunity to run simultaneous marketing messages on both corners, offering a more desirable placement for advertisers.

Development teams from Torino Co., New York-based Dayssi and Flag Luxury were on hand for the topping out, along with PENTA’s construction leadership, site superintendent and hundreds of workers.
