Strategically built at the entrance of Arizona State University (ASU), 777 Tower is the first multi-tenant office building to open in the Novus Innovation Corridor in the heart of Tempe, AZ. The six-story, 160,000-SF tower—built and developed by Ryan—is part of the greater Novus initiative to connect the university with innovative technology companies through a 350-acre, multi-phased development. As our 17th project on ASU-leased land, we were selected to create 777 Tower as a central hot spot and highly leasable building to attract innovative technology tenants. We were one of the first to negotiate all of the documents with the city of Tempe, paving the way for future Novus projects.
777 Tower conveys a high-quality, contemporary aesthetic which is technologically sophisticated. It meets Novus’ requirements for LEED certification and environmental details including a sustainable façade panel system with expressed solar shading devices. ASU’s three distinct floors include a standard office level, 16-foot ceilings with acoustic ceiling tile (ACT) and offices with full-height windows; an open study level with an industrial feel through exposed ceilings, grey luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring and accent walls; and a 60-office level with corridors along the perimeter to allow for natural light. Infosys’ two floors of modern, open, industrial space feature a combination of exposed and ACT ceilings; carpet and polished concrete flooring; black hardware, countertops and door/ window framing; and light wood millwork.
