The project encompasses the construction of separate residential and commercial buildings located directly adjacent to Temple University’s main campus. The complex represents a new direction in architecture and planning for Philadelphia by combining student housing and community-based commercial and entertainment venues.

The new development encompasses nearly two city blocks bound by Oxford Street, 15th Street and Broad Street. The 12-story, 278,000 sq. ft. residential building houses more than 1,200 Temple University students in quad-style dormitory rooms with a variety of cutting edge amenities and facilities. The building features a poured-in-place concrete structure with a prefabricated metal panel facade, punched windows and masonry features.

The separate 90,000 sq. ft., two story retail and entertainment building features a 32,000 sq. ft., seven-theater Loew’s movie complex, retail shops and restaurants.  It is a steel-framed structure with a facade treatment of curtainwall, metal panels and masonry.
