Privately developed, this project was designed to meet the University of Maryland’s student housing specifications for its College Park Campus. The new 16-story, post-tensioned concrete-frame, residential building contains 352 student-housing apartments for 1,091 beds and includes a walking bridge providing access to the university campus. The building’s ground floor is designed to accommodate the surrounding 100-year flood plain from the adjacent creek.
The building’s amenities include a computer room, health club and lounge, jogging/biking trail system, internet cafe, and structured parking for 710 cars. The parking structure is four levels of reinforced concrete, underlying the residential tower, and has a gross floor area of 255,000 sf.
