LCM is providing full architectural services for The Den on University, a five-story, off-campus student housing building near the University of Illinois (UIUC) campus. The development followed a PUD process. 

Building includes:

  • Four floors of apartments
  • A gym
  • Lobby
  • Covered, ground level parking

The podium-style building is designed in a clean, contemporary genre. The residential architectural elements include balconies and brick accents. Large windows that bathe the interior in natural light recall the industrial, loft look of many pre-war buildings in the area.

Four-bedroom units have suite style bedrooms with a communal galley kitchen and dining area. Other units have a living room and kitchen area. Bedrooms in all units have private bathrooms. This student housing development follows a co-living model leasing structure with each tenant separately renting a bedroom.

LCM Architects partners with Green Street Reality on this project and several other multi-family developments including the Fields South Development. 

“ … As usual, these buildings look fantastic … Thanks for all the hard work.”
– Chris Saunders, Owner, Sub4 Development
