ASU Taylor Place dorms (Tom Tingle, Arizona Republic)[Source: Jahna Berry, Arizona Republic] — Within a few weeks, hundreds of students will replace the sight of construction workers at the Taylor Place dorms on Arizona State University’s downtown campus.  Students will begin moving Aug. 20 into the first tower of the 13-story dorm complex, 120 E. Taylor Street.

The second tower will be open in fall 2009.  About 60 students and their families tour the building each week, said Jennifer Shea, director of operations at Taylor Place.  “Students are really jazzed about this,” Shea said.  About 382 students have signed up to live in the dorm.  The first tower has 744 beds.  [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
