Student Housing (UNO)

In 2004 the University Neighborhood Overlay (UNO) ordinance went into affect for the area west of UT Austin allowing for dense urban infill projects. In 2007 Simmons Vedder & Co. built two high rise student housing projects and one stand along parking garage. The streetscape designs incorporate the latest guidelines from the COA Urban Design Division, Public Works, and Austin Energy. Hardscape includes pedestrian pole lights, pavers, tree grates, shade trees, and ornamental trees. The courtyard designs include a swimming pool, water features, exterior lighting and specialty furnishings.
