The Univeristy of Miami is planning a major campus expansion designed by Arquitectonica.
Plans for a $155 million complex are now being reviewed by the city of Coral Gables. The proposal calls for 23 interconnected-buildings with:
1,104 new beds
200 seat auditorium
Launch Pad startup space for student businesses
A letter from the architect states that the project includes a learning center, multi-purpose rooms, and a “curated warehouse” for programming such as rotating exhibits, retail, micro-theater, and Food service. The Project also includes a central package center where residents can receive their mail and packages, a print shop, a bike shop, and recreation room.
The ground floor will be devoted to student-focused space, while the dormitory level will start at the second level, about 20-feet above ground.
The Coral Gables Development Review Committee reviewed the plans last week. Completion is scheduled for 2019, according to the Herald.
