Off-Campus Student Housing | Mixed-Use Wrap Apartments | Retail
Located minutes from Arizona State University, shopping and dining, and directly adjacent to Tempe’s light rail line, Sterling 920 Terrace replaces an aging student housing community. The new five-story mixed-use community targets students and features 1,800 square feet of ground-floor retail to activate the street. Some of the community’s amenities include a resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, clubroom with lounge and study rooms. The wrap building sits on a challenging and irregular 4.58 acre site and fills a void in the urban context. The architecture is contemporary with simple forms and clean lines. The color and material palette is cool with feature shading devices to address the heat of its desert environment. The building was constructed using sustainable building methods and incorporates a number of green features designed to ensure the community’s long-term energy-efficiency and sustainability.
