A $100 million student housing expansion, the University of Miami plans for a development that will house over 1,100 beds on an 8.6-acre site on Lake Osceola. The project would consist of 23 interconnected buildings with green roofs and two elevated courtyards. The bottom two floors would be dedicated to amenities, including a learning center, the Launch Pad for start up companies, a 200-seat auditorium, multi-purpose rooms, a curated “warehouse” for programming such as rotating exhibits, retail, micro theater and food service, a print shop, a bike shop and a recreation room. Above the amenities, there would be five levels of dorms. Social rooms and study lounges would be included in the upper floors.
