Ithaca College - Circle Apartments

Circle Apartments

 

Ithaca College identified a need to add approximately 870 on-campus apartment style beds to their housing stock. To minimize the impact on the College’s borrowing capacity for other projects, Ithaca College decided to partner with Integrated Acquisition & Development (IAD) to renovate and expand an already existing 324-bed apartment complex (College Circle Apartments) for exclusive use as on-campus student housing.

QPK Design, working closely with IAD and Ithaca College, developed a phased building program to double the number of buildings and beds on this site. The scope of work entailed renovations to the existing 12-building, 89-unit apartment complex (Phase I); the addition of nine (9), 2-story new residential buildings accommodating 60 apartment units and a 8,000 SF new commons building (Phase II); and an additional six (6), 2-story buildings accommodating 42 apartments units and 168 beds (Phase III); site modifications to parking, building layout and circulation; and the addition of a new connector road to the campus. The expanded 191-unit student housing complex accommodates:

15 two-person units (all single bedrooms) 8 three-person units (all single bedrooms) 73 four-person units (all singles bedrooms) 8 four-person units (one double bedroom)

38 five-person (one double bedroom); and 49 six-person units (one double bedroom).

The complex also features a central community center (Phase II) with a vaulted clerestory that provides a variety of amenities and services to residents. Inside are fitness, mail, self-service laundry with washers and dryers, and recreation rooms. Outside is a visitor parking area and a patio. This multi-purpose facility is also used by a variety of campus departments and campus organizations. Its modular meeting rooms can accommodate small groups or up to 125 people for larger functions.
