Out of the Dawg House
Demolition began today to replace the existing UW Tacoma facility know as the "Dawg Shed" with a new 20,250 square foot Assembly Hall. The site is east of the library, flanked on the south by the Cherry Parkes building, to the north by the Walsh Gardner building and to the east by Pacific Ave.
Scheduled for completion in 2008, the Assembly Hall will serve as a venue for world-class public lectures, arts events, performances and classes and will provide a student commons area, collaborative study rooms and new retail space along Pacific. Construction will begin in September.
