Pat Fitzgerald said that Northwestern’s $260 million facility is going to be a “game changer.”

Judging by the look of it, it’s not hard to see why.

The Wildcats provided an inside look at the new lakefront facility plans, which are set to open in the spring of 2018:

Northwestern’s all-inclusive 500,000 square foot facility does have an unmatched location on the shores of Lake Michigan. Based on the outdoor practice facility, it’s clear that the views will be one of a kind.

Construction is ongoing. Fitzgerald provided a few construction updates of the new Ryan Fieldhouse and Walter Athletics Center.

It won’t be long before construction is completed and Northwestern is at the forefront of the facilities arms race.
