University at Buffalo South Lake Village Student Housing Design

South Lake Village was constructed on a unique site between two lakes on UB's north campus and consists of 16 residence buildings providing alternative housing intended for upperclassmen and graduate students. The $23 million, 300,000-square-foot project included 228 apartments for a total of 552 beds. The site included a "village green" area and a 4,500-square-foot community building for university offices and student gatherings. Site utilities included a water loop, sanitary and storm sewer, natural gas, and electrical systems. Decorative site lighting was included to provide illumination and increase security.

The design team for this fast-paced project was selected just 16 months before the required completion date. Erdman Anthony's focused design effort was completed in approximately three months and required constant coordination with the university team and the architect. The project was completed on time with rave reviews from both the university and the students.
