This 126,000 gsf, two-building project, located on opposite sides of Brook Street on the southern end of the Brown University campus, will provide an additional 355 beds and commons spaces. Located adjacent to existing residence halls on the East and West sides of the project and with residential neighbors to the south, the new residence hall is for Brown upperclassmen who wish to balance living individually in single rooms with life in a residential community supported by kitchens, study and living. The unit typology includes two and four person suites with clusters of students around communal living facilities.
Preparation of the sites will include removal of parking lots and demolition two houses and one commercial building. Scope will include all-electric buildings with VRF heating and cooling.
The project delivery will be Design-Build with the assigned firm of Deborah Berke Partners.
The Brook Street Residence Halls will be Dimeo’s twelfth assignment on the Brown University campus.
