Williams Village Phase II Student Housing
"One of the things we always work towards at CU Boulder is building to be sustainable. Tracking to be LEED Platinum, with a total of 500 beds, it will be the largest residence hall in the nation that will achieve this status."

- Williams Village North at the University of Colorado-Boulder was designed with sustainability in mind. Destined to become a residential college, this 500 bed facility is forward-thinking in its design as well as its residential college program, which will focus on sustainability.
- Mackey Mitchell, as part of the Design/Build team of Whiting Turner Construction Company and Aller Lingle Massey Architects, was selected to design the new student housing project as the result of a design competition.
- The creative pinwheel design creates three separate and distinct outdoor courtyards. First floor amenities include a community lounge, recreation room, classrooms, a crepe & ice cream shop with outdoor seating, and a kitchen area with expansive views to the courtyards.
- Solar power will generate on-site renewable energy, and the structure has energy saving features expected to use 39% less energy than a baselilne building design based on LEED criteria.
