The University of Miami is preparing to spend about $155 million to build an 1,100-bed dormitory complex next to a lake on the UM campus in Coral Gables.

The Coral Gables Development Review Committee met Friday to discuss the dormitory project, part of a master plan for the UM campus that the city approved in 2010.

The project, which could advance without a vote by the city commission, is pending approval by Coral Gables planning director. Construction of the dormitory complex also requires a favorable vote by the University of Miami board of trustees.

The complex, designed by Miami-based architecture firm Arquitectonica, would open by the fall of 2019. The 23-building dormitory complex would be built on about nine acres in the middle of the UM campus next to Lake Osceola.

It would be the first new dormitory on the University of Miami campus since an apartment development called University Village opened in 2006. [Miami Herald] – Mike Seemuth
