The centerpiece of the Mesa Community College Performing Arts Center is a 460-seat multipurpose theater designed to accommodate a broad range of musical performances.

In addition to the main theater, back of house spaces include performance classrooms, solo and group music practice spaces, faculty offices and a performance lobby space.

The project reused approximately 75% of an existing movie theater for back of house components and classrooms, dramatically reducing construction waste.

The site also made extensive use of water and energy efficient fixtures, reflective roofing and daylighting. Key features include:

  • University campus expansion
  • Green construction (LEED Silver)
