Designed by the joint venture team of GraceHebert Architects and HOK, the new LSU Student Recreation Center is a must see! The Athletic Business Conference (ABC) headed to Baton Rouge to tour LSU’s University Recreation (UREC) expansion, the recreation field complex and several athletics buildings.
November 19, 2015
The first stop was to see how LSU’s UREC is expanding and redesigning its footprint while still providing its students, members and guests with the services and amenities they desire. The original rec center, built in 1992, is undergoing a massive $84.75 million renovation that will introduce an additional 136,177 square feet to the current 121,000-square-foot facility. The expansion and redesign includes aquatic facilities (including a 536-foot lazy river that will spell out the letters LSU), a challenge course, an outdoor adventure center, a climbing wall, a gymnasium, racquetball courts, cardio and weights areas, group fitness rooms and more.
Later in the tour, the group also visited Tiger Stadium, LSU Basketball Practice Facility, and Alex Box Stadium. Alex Box Stadium was designed by GraceHebert Architects.
