Hoboken’s planning board later approved the institute’s 75,000-square-foot University Center, which will be LEED Silver Certified and rise about 222 feet at the highest point. Plans were drawn up by Baltimore-based Design Collective and Wallace Roberts and Todd.
The project will consist of an extensive three-story university center building with 21- and 19-story glass towers rising from the brick base. The towers will be linked by a breezeway and will accommodate approximately 1,000 beds in single, double, and suite-style apartments. The tower portion of the development will return many students to Stevens who are currently living in off-campus housing around Hoboken.
It will feature a large outdoor plaza facing east that will fully showcase Stevens’ signature views of New York City.
