Taylor Place is a mixed-used student housing development at the center of the ASU Downtown campus that was completed in 2009. An urban infill project, Taylor Place was designed to support the emerging student population and expanding programs and is the first housing project for the downtown campus. Taylor place is comprised of two 13-story towers, one ground floor and 12 floors of residential units. The first tower is comprised of freshman residences and the second tower to the north is intended for sophomore and upper-division students. The two towers are connected via a walkway bridge that is screened for safety. One elevator core serves both towers; the central location encourages student interface between both towers. The building super structure is made up of cast-in-place and post-tension concrete and the skin is clad in aluminum composite panels of varying shades and color. Taylor Place was delivered in two phases, one tower per phase. The phases were completed within 12 months of each other and both were delivered on time and under budget. Taylor Place was the 2007 Student Housing Project of the Year.
