The K, a 401-bed, 123,562-square-foot student housing project at Chapman University, has been completed. Designed to reflect the historic charm of Old Towne Orange, the four-story structure will help accommodate the university’s rapid growth and will be occupied for the fall semester.
The 110-room, horseshoe shaped building at North Cypress Street and West Palm Avenue is comprised of one and two-bedroom suites, as well as studios. Units feature a kitchen and either one or two bathrooms, and all except the studios include a living room. Open community spaces include couches, chairs, high-top tables and televisions, and open to an outdoor courtyard. There are study rooms throughout the building, and each floor is equipped with a laundry facility.
The brick exterior, corrugated metal paneling and exposed structural elements reflect the historic aesthetic of Old Towne Orange, the largest National Registered Historic District in California. The project was built by R.D. Olson Construction, it’s fifth for the university.
