Mixed-Use Student Housing Development
IMEG provided structural engineering design services, along with parking consultation, for the Vantage 471,000-sf mixed-use student housing building. Located on a 4.6-acre parcel at the edge of the Temple University campus, the project varies in height — portions of the project are 7, 12 and 18 stories — and includes one- to five-bedroom apartments; ground floor retail; amenities featuring a wellness and outdoor fitness center, a top-floor sky lounge and gated parking, as well as a 10,000-sf innovation center for outreach programs and community support.
Vantage utilizes multiple structural systems. The 18-story east tower is structural steel and precast plank, while the west tower is eight stories of precast plank and cold formed stud bearing walls over four stories of structural steel and concrete slabs on metal deck. The connector bridge unites the two towers with four stories of precast plank and cold formed stud bearing walls over three stories of structural steel and concrete slabs on metal deck.
