I really like it!!!

It’s on Elkhorn (off of 49th), across the street from the Oceanography building. I would withhold any judgement until you see it in person. It is a great addition to our campus.

The building actually has 2 different brick colors! I'd recommend you check it out when you can, it's right next to the baseball field so next time you go check out our (ranked!) baseball team it'll be right there. The side further from 43rd has a lighter brick color that more matches what you'll see on the interior of campus, but the closer side's more reddish brick is very similar to what you'll see on Monarch way, especially with the Barry Arts Building. I was dubious of the plan myself but seeing it in person it actually looks very good if you ask me. I think they have an opportunity to make a really cool feeling corridor with some good landscaping across Elkhorn and maybe some murals or large prints on the Physics building.

I'll have to give it a drive by soon :) I'll be heading that way next week and will check it out.

There is a big area on the on side that faces the baseball field that sticks out, like a 2 story patio. It would probably be a good place to watch a game from.
