As part of its master plan, Wayne State University explored ways to increase student housing as more students choose to live in Detroit rather than commute. The new Anthony Wayne Drive residence hall meets this growing demand.
PBA provided MEP engineering and lighting design services for the 11-story, 406,800 square foot housing development. The new residence hall accommodates 841 beds in a variety of four-bedroom flats and studio apartments. Amenities and services include secured wired and wireless internet, study rooms and game lounges on each floor, a dance studio, on-site laundry facilities, free cable TV, and three courtyard areas.
Standing as the largest student housing structure on campus, the facility also offers a Campus Health Center and a wide variety of ground level retail outlets including Beyond Juice, Tubby’s Sub Shop, Just Baked Cupcakes, Leo’s Coney Island, a 7-Eleven, and more.
The University is in pursuit of a LEED Silver certification from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) for their energy conscious efforts.
