The University of Miami announced plans to build a new $260 million, multi-phase student housing complex at its Coral Gables campus.

UM is looking to build Centennial Village, which will consist of four, nine-story residential buildings to replace the Stanford and Hecht residential colleges. In total, the project will span 522,000 square feet and will have 1,700 rooms, according to a press release. The rooms will have a mix of both single and double beds and can house a total of 2,100 students. The university’s enrollment totals more than 10,000 undergraduate students.

The buildings will feature private bathrooms and shared kitchenettes as well as classrooms and learning hubs, according to the release. As part of a shared common spaces in Centennial Village, there will be a meditation and reflection room as well as a recreation and gaming room.

UM’s Centennial Village is the second phase of a 10-year plan to modernize its campus housing. The complex will sit in front of Lake Osceola.

Design plans for Centennial Village have been submitted to the city of Coral Gables for review, and the university plans to break ground on the project in the summer of 2020. The project will be built in two stages, according to the release.

The first stage of Centennial Village will replace Stanford Residential College and is planned to open in the fall of 2022. The second stage, which will replace Hecht Residential College, is projected to open in the fall of 2024. Eaton Residential College will also be renovated and incorporated into Centennial Village upon its completion in the fall of 2025.

The University contracted with Virginia-based VMDO Architects and Miami-based Zyscovich Architects to design the project. Grycon LLC is also providing pre-construction services.
