Morgantown, West Virginia
Developed by Paradigm Development Group
238 units, 958 beds
Located in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Morgantown on West Virginia University property, University Place has transformed an aging off-campus housing precinct into a vibrant urban neighborhood.
Developed through a public-private partnership, the project’s two highrise residential towers provide students with an abundance of amenities, striking a balance between supplying the comforts of home and appealing to students as a bustling housing complex.
Retail, parking, restaurants and a grocery store occupy the ground level, fronting a revitalized streetscape. The design faces the challenge of the site’s significant grade change through a monumental stair, landscaped plazas, and private elevated courtyards. These outdoor features showcase breathtaking views of the city and the surrounding West Virginia landscape.
University Place transformed aging, off-campus housing blocks into a vibrant urban neighborhood.
The suites vary from two to four private bedrooms. Each unit contains private paired baths and modern kitchens, living rooms, and dining areas.
