Syracuse University – Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center

Named for NBA star Carmelo K. Anthony, who attended Syracuse University, this training facility was designed to bolster the school’s ability to recruit top male and female players in the competitive world of college basketball. Tucked into a landscape that rises behind the building to a wooded high point, the low-rise structure features a striking entrance facade that glows at night.

The Melo Center includes basketball courts, a weight-training center, a hydrotherapy area, multi-media classrooms, and offices for coaches. LEED® certified, the structure is designed to use 30 percent less water and 20 percent less energy than a typical new building. More than half of the construction and demolition waste was recycled or reused, and about 20 percent of materials in the building were made from recycled components.
