A new 20-story, 868 unit student housing condo that ranges from studios to four-bedroom options, located across the street from the north side of Florida International University’s main campus provides a 5-minute walk to class. The 1,244-bed residential tower will house students, faculty, and staff of the university. Designed to provide an urban lifestyle to student housing and differentiate from traditional on-campus dorms, the focus was centered on enhancing the students experience by designing an amenity-rich environment designed specifically to promote a social, urbanized atmosphere and meet the needs of the 21st century. The amenities program includes a 6th floor, 29,600sf deck with a beach-entry swimming pool, pool volleyball, cabanas, trellis & bbq areas, large projection screen, seating areas, a large green lawn surrounded by a lush all native, drought tolerant planting palette that provides for a space that aids human social interaction and promotes community. A landscaped 5,300sf terrace on the 13th floor with panoramic views of the city is programmed with trellised seating areas, dining tables, and bbq’s for gathering and sharing. The project also includes multiple indoor shared study areas, a state-of-the-art fitness center, rooftop indoor sunset lounge, bike garage, 656 parking spaces, and 7,200 sf of retail space on the ground floor with a sidewalk cafe and convenience store.
