The Depot Apartments - The University of Akron

Details

This  624-bed student housing community is located on a site that was the formerly a freight station for the Erie Rail Road. The new facility takes design cues for the historic landmarks it has replaced including red brick, exposed duct work, raw wood, metal elements and canopy roofs. Although the building and site acknowledges its historic roots, the facility offers students a full-range of modern amenities.
