With two giant earth-movers as a backdrop, a new Sacramento State residence hall that will house 600 students was formally dedicated with a groundbreaking ceremony at 10 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 29.

The 209,050 square-foot building will replace Foley Hall, a former residence hall built in 1959 that was being used as an office complex prior to its demolition in August. Crews have been preparing the site for construction, and the facility is scheduled to welcome its first students in the fall of 2009.

The groundbreaking was noted in remarks by University President Alexander Gonzalez, vice president for Student Affairs Lori Varlotta and student body president Christina Romero. Invited guests included representatives from the Student Housing Advisory Committee, the architect firm of Mogavero Notestine Associates, and Brown Construction.

The four-story complex will boost on-campus residence housing from about 1,100 to 1,700 students and offer a variety of suites, triples, doubles and single-occupancy rooms, each with its own bathroom, living room and a food preparation area, as well as common areas such as a central courtyard.
