Ryan Cos. US and University Realty have topped off 777 Tower at Novus, a 160,000-square-foot office building under construction on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, Ariz. The developers completed the building structure, concrete work and dry utilities, while the metal panel installation and interior lobby works are scheduled to begin next month. The development broke ground in May and is slated for completion in June 2020. 

Located at the southwest intersection of S. Rural Road and Sixth Street, the 2.8-acre site is part of the Novus Innovation Corridor, the 330-acre multi-phased development underway in the heart of Greater Phoenix. The six-story building will sit less than 1 mile west of downtown Tempe, across the street from the Cornerstone Shopping Mall. The property is also close to the Rural Road light rail station, Red Mountain Freeway and State Route 101, with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport roughly 6 miles west.

Designed by local architect DAVIS, 777 Tower at Novus is the first of three office buildings planned for Novus Innovation Corridor. The L-shaped facility will feature penthouse office spaces, about 8,000 square feet of retail on the first floor and more than 800 parking spots. The buildings will be connected through a central plaza for events. Tenants will be within walking distance of numerous dining options and sports venues, as well as other amenities that will be created inside the Innovation Corridor.
