The latest building coming to Mesa College may feel more like a business complex than a classroom structure, but that’s the idea.

“We did that intentionally so students will feel like they’ll learn in an environment they’ll work in,” Mesa College President Pam Luster said about the school’s new Center for Business and Technology, expected to open in January 2019.

Luster said the architectural firm Gensler, which designed the building, usually does technology spaces. This was their first educational building.

Construction on the project began months ago, but a ceremonial groundbreaking was held Wednesday at Mesa College.
