Midwest Construction's Best of 2010

From a pool of 175 nominated projects from eight states,  Midwest Construction announced their  “Best of  2010 Construction and Design Awards.”  An Award of Merit in the category of higher education was presented to Mackey Mitchell for the Washington University in St. Louis  South 40 Redevelopment project which embodies a European streetscape design.  In addition to suite-style housing, students also enjoy a market, bakery, fitness center, and a variety of food venues. Comfortable lounges and a large stone fireplace foster a home-away-from-home atmosphere. The buildings also feature cafes, shops, and other entertainment and retail businesses, many with outdoor dining and seating areas.  This South 40 development addresses the holistic needs of students and implements the university’s commitment to an exceptional undergraduate experience in the residential areas. The building design contributes to and positively impacts the overall student experience.
