Capstone partnered with The University of San Diego, a Catholic University founded in 1949, to develop three phases of housing for the San Diego campus. Phase I, named Manchester Village, provides over 350 beds of undergraduate housing in two buildings. The two buildings offer three and four levels of apartments with full kitchens and living rooms. The facility also includes over 7,000 SF of study and office space, 1,500 SF of conference space, a convenience store, computer room, and underground parking. The complex is also host to a new Residential Learning Community named “Wisdom for the Real World.” The Capstone team worked closely with the University to design the new housing so that it complemented the existing Spanish Renaissance campus architecture style. The exterior housing design consists of precast concrete details, arched windows, finials and decorative columns. Manchester Village was delivered in 2002.
