The U Centre on Turner Apartments project is a 718 bed student housing community located on a 3.81 acre site at the intersection of Providence Rd. & Turner Ave. in Columbia, MO.
The off-site improvements will entail the removal of an existing water service and installation of a new and upgrade water utility service. On-site improvements will consist of the installation of water, sewer and storm system utilities that will tie into existing public utilities. The site improvements will also include the constructing of a six story pre-cast concrete parking deck, hardscaping, landscaping and irrigation, asphalt paving, and concrete sidewalks.
The development will consist of two 5-story apartment buildings, one integral community center area, one maintenance area and an exterior community pool area. This 182 unit development will consist of five 2 bedroom, 2-bathroom units and one hundred seventy-seven 4-bedroom, 4 bathroom units. The total gross building area for the community is estimated at 331,203 square feet.
Construction will be type 3 wood framed construction with cementitious siding and brick veneer. Roofing will consist of a TPO system. All building slabs will be conventionally reinforced with deep grade beams and stem walls. Interior finishes will consist of painted drywall walls and ceilings with a textured finish, and a mixture of carpet and faux wood flooring. Wood cabinetry and trim with solid surface countertops will be installed in all kitchens and bath areas.
