The new Loyola Marymount student housing project is a $57M Design-Build project. The demolition of two existing buildings allows for two new four-story buildings with 625 beds in 194,000 GSF. Located in the heart of the LMU campus next to the Doheny Hall and William Hannon Library, one of the buildings provides 326 beds of freshman housing, which includes 296 beds of double bedrooms, 20 beds of single bedrooms and 10 for resident assistants for a total of about 90,000 GSF. The other building provides upper-division housing, which includes 76 beds of double bedrooms, 36 beds of single bedrooms, four for RAs and 180 beds in five-bedroom units (two double and one single). Construction for both buildings consists of four-story, Type V wood construction over conventional foundation. One of the challenges of this project is to have stand-alone water, power, and gas without connecting to the Central Utility Plant. The project intends to meet LEED Silver or better.
