Moss Construction Completes $134M University of Miami Lakeside Village Student Housing Property
CORAL GABLES, FLA. — Moss Construction has delivered University of Miami Lakeside Village, a $134 million, 1,115-bed student housing community on the University of Miami campus.
The 569,441-square-foot, seven-story project features 25 interconnected buildings and several outdoor spaces. The property offers classrooms, music rooms, study areas, recreation rooms, a 200-seat auditorium and offices. The buildings also have food options, a package center and an exhibition hall.
The university opened for in-person classes Monday, Aug. 17, a week earlier than planned due to the coronavirus pandemic. The fall semester will conclude Friday, Nov. 20, the week before Thanksgiving.
To support sustainability initiatives, the property includes green roofs that absorb carbon dioxide to help clean the air and regulate the climate. Also, existing plant life was evaluated and, when possible, integrated into the landscape or relocated elsewhere on campus.
Miami-based Arquitectonica designed the community.
