At a ceremony July 24, Alamo Colleges District Board Chair Dr. Yvonne Katz, Trustees Marcelo Casillas, Joe Alderete Jr. and Gene Sprague joined Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie, Incoming Chancellor Dr. Mike Flores and district employees to celebrate the "topping out" of the new District Support Operations Building under construction on the 12-acre former Playland Park site at 2222 N. Alamo.

Two steel beams were signed by attendees and then raised by a giant crane to "top out" the building, marking a significant milestone in the construction. The complex is 40% completed and will comprise five interconnected buildings on three floors and a large, multi-purpose conference center/boardroom with space for 300. The district broke ground on the new facility in January 2017 and plans to hold the grand opening in early 2019.
