GCU Plans $100M in Construction This Year

By Angela Gonzalez for Phoenix Business Journal

Grand Canyon Education Inc. is set to spend more than $100M this year to grow its campus in Phoenix.

Plans call for building two more apartment-style dorms, a classroom building, another parking garage and a club sports facility.

Each of the 5-story, 624-bed dorms will be built north of a newly built parking garage at 29th Avenue and Camelback Road. An additional 2,400-space parking garage totaling nearly 800KSF will be built on the north side of the campus at 29th and Missouri avenues.

A 2-story club sports facility will be built on the northern edge of the campus at 30th Drive and Missouri Avenue, and will include 12 multipurpose basketball/volleyball courts and office space.

Plans also call for building a 2-story classroom building adjacent to the club sports facility.

Pono Construction, which has built all the other construction projects on campus, will build these projects as well.

It’s all part of a bigger plan to spend an average of $100M each year over five years to continue to grow the campus to 400 acres, said Brian Mueller, CEO of Grand Canyon Education and president of GCU.
