The Details

This 55,000 square foot, 201-bed dormitory is the first building project in the implementation of the University’s housing plan.

Ultimately, each 1970s-era residence hall on site will be demolished and replaced by new state-of-the-art facilities. As the Architect of Record on the KBE Construction Design-Build team, JSA is responsible for taking the project from bridging documents through to completion.

Sited halfway up a hill and adjacent to the University’s observatory, the building has panoramic views of the campus including the rotunda and mall, as well as Monticello in the distance.
