Synopsis:

 

Erdy McHenry Architecture, working with the Architect of Record, Holmes King Kallquist & Associates in Syracuse, NY designed mixed-use housing for approximately 312 beds including studios, one bedroom units, and 2-bed / 2-bath and 4-bed / 4-bath suites.

 

The complex is composed of five floors, four of which are residential. The ground floor includes a combined coffee shop and convenience store, a clubhouse with a fitness center, computer lab and business center and a Department of Public Safety office.

 

A portion of the facade on Henry Street is pulled westward to create a planted entry plaza, providing a visual separation in the block-long facade.  Seating from the retail space on the south end of the plaza provides life to a long-dormant portion of Henry Street while an outside terrace on the western side of the main building lobby allows students a quieter setting for studies.
