Developers Release Renderings of California College of the Arts Affordable Student Housing Project
- Oct 29, 2014
California College of the Arts recently released renderings for one of the most interesting student housing projects in the entire state of California. The university’s in-development Panoramic Residences is an affordable student housing development on which CCA has partnered with Panoramic Interests. The project is taking shape in San Francisco’s SoMa district, in the vicinity of Twitter’s current HQ, as well as the upscale apartment complex known as Nema. The property is on track for an official opening in the fall of next year.
The Panoramic Residences student housing complex will be a 12-story building offering up enough units to host around 200 students. The units will be two-person studios and four-person suites, while residents will benefit from on-site bike and car share programs. The community will also have a rooftop garden, a community deck, and common areas for students on every floor. The project attempts to provide some relief to a market that has seen a gaping lack of affordable student housing units.
The amenity package at Panoramic Residences includes flat-screen TVs, 9-foot ceilings, operable windows, stainless steel appliances, WiFi connectivity, individually controlled heat and ventilation, engineered soundproofing and floor-to-ceiling storage. The building is located in the vicinity of BART and Muni transportation lines and offers a walk score of 97. The property also tries to reduce consumption with a number of features aimed at preserving energy usage such as Energy Star rated appliances, low-flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting and natural light and ventilation.
