The Municipality of Anchorage, or MOA, recently held round-table discussions for community members interested in the long-term planning and changes being made to the University-Medical District. The state-funded project includes district plan updates, implementation recommendations, transportation and parking utilization, a co-generation feasibility study and public outreach.

Crowds gathered in the Bookstore parking lot Dec. 6 to watch a lone piece of metal hoisted to the top of the continually growing Engineering and Industry Building. This piece of metal bore the signatures of more than 50 individuals commemorating the final piece of steel to be outfitted onto the frame of the new building in what is called a “topping-out” ceremony.
On Friday morning roughly 200 people ambled around the muddy construction site just south of the Wells Fargo Sports Complex, where the partial steel skeleton of UAA’s new Engineering and Industry Building can be found. There was a tent full of scones and a barrel of umbrellas, but the rain never came. Eleven gold shovels were propped in a mound of dirt for the groundbreaking ceremony that was to take place.
