5801 URC – University of Maryland at College Park

Project description

The 18.27 acre masterplanned site will consist of 25 residential lots and five office buildings, with building numbers Two and Three to include a retail component on the first floor. The placement of the structures will leverage access from the highway that fronts the acreage. The design of the buildings will be conventional steel framing with brick veneer over metal stud, along with architectural steel and EIFS detailing. Special attention has been given to use of spandrel glass, location of utilities, and addition of landscaping to minimize the ‘back of house’ feel usually associated with the rear of the retail buildings.
