Independence Construction was the Construction Manager for this mixed-use project’s residence hall and pedestrian bridge and the Design-Builder for the mixed-use building.
The residence hall, Eagle Landing, consists of two 5-story structural stud framed buildings with 156 two-bedroom apartments constructed in a 206,000 SF “U”-shaped complex, fronted by a two-story rotunda. Each unit contains two large bedrooms (designed for two students per room), two full baths, a living room, and a full kitchen with eat-in bar. The facility also features a front garden with patio; a large rear courtyard with a sizable terrace for social activities and an artificial turf area for recreation; a concierge desk for 24-hour security; game lounges on two floors; study lounges on two floors; laundry rooms on each floor; and a meeting room for private student functions.
The remainder of the complex includes a three-story, 38,000 SF office building over 12,000 SF of retail space; a 165,000 SF precast parking garage that includes corrals for 200 bicycles, over 26,000 SF of retail space; and a 197-foot-long enclosed pedestrian bridge linking the complex to the UMW campus.
A total site package was also part of the project and included the development of approximately seven acres.
