UMDNJ University Housing & Mixed-Use Facility

Newark NJ

K&A provided comprehensive architectural design and engineering services for this new fourteen-story mixed-use student housing residence and parking garage facility for the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). Located on the corner of Norfolk and Market Streets in downtown Newark, the facility includes commercial retail spaces, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a five-story parking garage for 525 cars, and nine stories of student housing—offering the university population a total of 234 new units with 465 beds.

The structural system of the project includes cast-in-place concrete for the parking garage and a steel and concrete plank structure with a prefabricated (panelized) brick veneer for the residential floors within the building.
