CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The Dallas office of Omniplan has been selected to design the new $25 million O’Connor Business Building for the Corpus Christi campus of Texas A&M University. The 76,000-square-foot building will be located next to Lee Plaza and will house the university’s College of Business. It will include classrooms, computer labs, executive education facilities, business incubators, and faculty and administrative offices. The building features a two-story lobby with a sculptural staircase, a bridge connecting second-floor spaces, an electronic stock ticker, video monitors tuned to business networks, and a second-level balcony that can accommodate student study space or reception space for the building’s multi-purpose room. The project is applying for LEED-Silver certification. Construction will begin in summer 2009, with completion scheduled for fall 2010.
