In August 2006 the Capstone Development Team was selected through a competitive bid process to partner with Towson University to develop and manage the first phase of new student housing in the West Village, a critical component of the University’s campus master plan. The first phase consists of two L-shaped buildings abutting a central green space and adjacent to a planned pedestrian corridor. Drawing upon the architectural vernacular of recently completed campus buildings of which they were involved, the Capstone team incorporated modern, “clean” elements into the façade of these initial buildings – setting the tone for the future of West Village. Phase I consists of 668 beds of double occupancy suite style units as well as approximately 15,000 square feet of living-learning program space. Phase I was completed in October 2008.

Thanks to a successful West Village Phase I, the Capstone Development Team was selected through a similar process to develop Phase II of West Village. Phase II offers similar, mirror image buildings to Phase I, but with noticeable differences, including extreme site topography and LEED Silver Certification. Phase II consists of 652 beds and also double occupancy suite style units. Phase II was completed in August 2011.
