Background on project:
An eighteen-story student residence located in Chicago's south loop area. The 702,000 sq. ft. student dormitory (the nation's largest mulit-university student residence once completed) will house 1,700 students. The dormitory project is a joint venture between three of Chicago's prominent institutions of higher learning: Columbia College, DePaul University and Roosevelt University. The three colleges created the Educational Advancement Fund, a not-for-profit-corporation to develop and maintain the building.

Located on the southeast corner of Congress Parkway and State Street, this residential structure will have 28,000 sq. ft. of prime retail space occupying the first floor; 30,000 sq. ft. of student amenities, including lounges, offices, media and game rooms, laundry, and conference rooms on the second floor, residences, great room and a 20,000 sq. ft. park with trees, planters and benches will occupy the majority of the third level. Floors four through eighteen will be two-student, two-bedroom units with a shared bath on the north side of the building and four-student, four-bedroom apartments on the south.
