What’s top of mind at KSQ

Mixed-Use Apartment Style Student Housing


The Project

Located at the Elm and Broadway crossroads in the coastal city of New Haven, CT, KSQ designed the latest mixed-use addition to the urban center of downtown.  This new construction mixed-use facility is the first of its kind to offer two stories of commercial space under 4 stories of housing.  The oversized bedrooms ensure that each student has an at-home office among the full complement of urban apartment style living amenities.  A Commons on the second floor, overlooking the commercial center of New Haven, fosters social, study and technology-based engagement among students. Punctuated by the outfitter, LL Bean, the facility meets the growing demand for flexible apartment-style housing along with the complex needs of contemporary retail vendors and retailers.
