LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The "topping off" ceremony for the University of Louisville's Student Recreation Center took place Tuesday afternoon. U of L President James Ramsey and more than 50 students signed the final beam before workers installed it.
The facility is expected to cost $37.5 million and will include an exercise and weight facility, six basketball courts, a jogging track, classrooms, and other facilities.
The center will also be the first building at U of L to be heated and cooled with geothermal energy. It's expected to earn gold certification through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
"This facility will help us continue to attract the best and brightest students to the University of Louisville," President Ramsey said. "Students today expect not only outstanding academic programs, but also social and recreational opportunities as part of their campus experience."
Construction costs are being covered by a $98 per semester student fee U of L's Student Government Association proposed. The university says nearly 90 percent of student representatives voted for the construction.
The current activities center will continue to house some student activities and organizations.
