A couple of two-story suites have eight single bedrooms and loft-like living with views of Tampa Bay. All residents have use of a ground floor common kitchen area, laundry room and two large multi-purpose rooms.
The team surpassed the original goal of LEED Silver certification to achieve LEED Gold. Sustainable design features include 100% outside air for residence rooms with energy recovery units; high-efficiency LED fixtures, with extensive use of daylight harvesting; and low-flow plumbing fixtures to reduce consumption by 38%.
