Resort-like housing appeals to today’s university students.

When the University of North Florida wanted to attract students and boost the on-campus resident population, they turned to Haskell for a design-build solution. The result of the collaboration is Osprey Fountains, an appealing, resort-like residence that showcases a new level of on-campus living.

We combined practical options and sought-after amenities.

With four, five-story connected residence towers and 1,000 beds, the facility is a creative arrangement of four- and six-bedroom suites, staff and guest apartments, laundry facilities, themed lounges, common kitchens and study areas. The facility’s resort-like amenities include a fitness center, convenience store, lighted tennis courts and volleyball court, basketball court, track, putting green, picnic tables and a swimming pool complex complete with a lazy-river pool.

The university complex is a sustainable showcase.

Our client, who sought basic LEED certification, ended up earning LEED Silver certification for incorporating so many highly sustainable initiatives. The university credits Haskell and design-build methodology for creating an exceptionally designed, highly functional complex that draws students to the on-campus lifestyle.
