Structural design of two 60,000 square foot, four story retail and residential mixed use facilities along with a two-story, 40 000-sf Barnes and Noble Superstore (which also serves as RIT's campus bookstore) adjacent to the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Henrietta, NY Campus. Total estimated construction cost $75M.
These structures anchor the commercial area of a larger residential development spread across 60 acres which created a college-town neighborhood including student housing, retail stores, dining and recreational amenities. The housing accommodates 924 beds and accounts for a balanced distribution of one to five bedrooms units that accommodate a large range of housing requirements and requests.
The Barnes and Noble building is a convetional steel frmed structure, but the residential buildngs represent the first, multi-story wood framed on steel podium buildings designed by Tredo Engineers in 2008.
