About Residences of College Park II

This steel and glass residential tower sits on a podium which houses a mix of commercial, residential and amenity spaces. The project’s materiality includes stone and granite detailing which speaks to the historic monumentality of the existing College Park structure. The podium and townhouse built form provides the necessary transition of scale to create an urban edge condition, engaging the pedestrian realm on all four sides through programmatic uses which promote public animation and interaction. Canopies and arcades provide the definition of retail and residential access points to the development as well as continuous weather protection around the entire perimeter of the development, while maintaining a sense of continuity to the urban condition.

Energy efficient envelopes and mechanical equipment were incorporated to reduce its potential carbon footprint and energy consumption. With a City mandate to provide affordable housing, the project harmoniously incorporates suite types and sizes that are both affordable and accommodating. Landscaped roofs and terraces are also incorporated to recycle storm water for irrigation uses.
