Ground breaks on basketball practice facility

Very rarely does my job (online editor for two business-to-business magazines) offer me any information that I am interested in outside of the confines of my office. However, today is one of those days:

In addition, Turner has broken ground on a $23 million basketball development center for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich. The basketball development center is being constructed adjacent to the Crisler Arena on the Ann Arbor campus. Construction is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2011. The scope of work includes a 57,000 sq. ft. facility featuring two basketball practice courts, locker rooms for players and coaches, a strength and conditioning space and a hydrotherapy and medical facility.

“Turner is proud to be a building partner with The University of Michigan. As a graduate of the University and a long time fan of Michigan basketball, it is personally rewarding to be part of this project to benefit the Wolverine basketball teams,” said Steve Berlage, Vice President and General Manager of Turner’s Michigan operations.

Not breaking news or anything, but they've officially broken ground on the basketball practice facility. Huzzah.

EDIT: I did think this happened a little while ago, and a brief check of returns that ground was broken at least a few weeks ago. Pictures. So in the words of Liz Lemon, "Mark it down Cerie: July 15, just like every other day."
