It is scheduled to be finished by November. The structure cost around $20 million, funded by Measure C. Measure C was voted in to give $350 million to help with the cost of upgrading many facilities on campus. Music, Nursing and Sciences, Stadium, Lovekin and Quadrangle were funded by Measure C. The parking structure will provide many amenities that help facilitate sports, security and parking. The top of the structure will hold seven full size competition tennis courts and will be used extensively for the many sports activities on campus.

Two elevators will be available for use on both ends of the structure. Emergency phones will be placed throughout as well as metered parking.
