Over the course of eight months the Capstone-Harrison Street team competed in a competitive RFP process by which CHS was awarded the development, design, finance and construction of a new $134 Million on-campus residential mixed-use village. The new village will deliver ultimately 2,171 beds in 5 new concrete res halls, 19,000 sf dining commons, 20,000 sf wellness/recreation center in 2 phases, August 2017 and August 2018.
The project will have a combination of semi-suite and traditional style residential beds, a health and wellness facility, outdoor pool, dining facility and retail spaces. The new village will be located on the north portion of campus, replacing the current Andros housing complex, which has served more than 50,000 students since being built in the early 1960’s. The housing project will meet the standards for LEED Silver certification. In total, the project will increase USF’s housing levels by about 1,000 beds, raising the on-campus capacity to nearly 7,000.
