DEW was hired as Construction Manager by Redstone Development to build a 169,000 SF, 403 bed, multi-story, multi building apartment complex on the University of Vermont (UVM) campus. The new apartments, which operate independently of the university and are technically “off campus”, are owned and managed by Redstone Commercial Group who leases the 144 units to UVM upperclassmen and graduate students.
Youkel Architects designed the buildings in two main wings, each a subtle curve that minimizes the mass from the exterior. The point where the wings meet, called “The Lantern”, is glass-walled and includes the common space. The face of Redstone Lofts is a blend of black brick accented with blue, yellow, and white panels for a look that is contemporary and retro. Both buildings contain open on grade parking underneath.
In addition to a mix of spacious studio, one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom loft style apartments the complex contains a lounge, game room, study rooms, theatre/media center, small exercise area and an outdoor gathering area.
This project is LEED™ Silver Certified.
