The Metropolitan State University of Denver‘s new Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Building is under construction!

Excavation recently started for the 142,000, four-story facility at 7th and Auraria Parkway. Check out our first post on this project for renderings and more.

I stopped by the site the other day and snapped these photos:

It’s great to see Auraria continuing to grow! The new facility is on pace for a 2017 opening.
