UWT Toasts to Joy

Chancellor Pat Spakes, UW Regent Herb Simon and others raised a glass of sparkling cider this morning in celebration of the Joy Building renovation at S. 17th and Pacific Avenue. The Joy Building, named after architect Russell T. Joy is the final historic UWT structure along Pacific Avenue to receive a makeover. Upon completion, the Joy Building will provide much-needed faculty offices and classrooms for the growing UWT population.

The Joy Building renovation is part of a $34 million capital construction package from the Washington State Legislature. The package also includes funding for the addition and renovation of three labs in the Science Building—already under way—and infrastructure build out to support future campus expansion up the hill towards Market St.
