Overview

The University’s Housing Development Plan called for a major redevelopment over a 10-year period. Phase 1 included a five-building, 914-bed, living-learning residential complex made up of four housing buildings along with a central learning common building. Significant utility and infrastructure improvements were integrated into the work and a new parking lot was built for 400 cars in response to the dislocated parking that was once present on the building sites. The project also included ‘The Sweep’ which created pedestrian pathways and green spaces that allow for ease of pedestrian circulation and fully accessible routes from South green. This was the largest student housing undertaking in Ohio University’s history as well as the first time the University used the CMR delivery method. The project received LEED Silver certification.
