Centennial Hall Student Housing Site Design

Centennial Hall Student Housing Site Design

The College of Saint Rose, Albany, New York

Centennial Hall is the College of Saint Rose’s newest apartment-style residence hall housing 224 students in 2- and 4-person apartments.

Saratoga Associates worked in conjunction with the prime architect providing site planning and design services including the addition of approximately 135 parking spaces.

Centennial Hall features an outdoor courtyard area off the rear entrance to the building for both planned and impromptu functions on the lawn. Decorative pedestrian, parking lot and street furnishings were designed to create a visually attractive site. Landscape plantings were carefully positioned to enhance visual quality. The landscape plan integrates building entrances with the Madison Avenue sidewalk system and maintains continuity with the visual character of the streetscape. A sustainable storm water management system minimizes offsite discharge and enhances water quality.

Saratoga Associates was responsible for design, programming, concept, schematic design, design development and construction documents for all landscape architectural elements including grading, planting, layout & materials, site circulation and design details.
