AIA-SWO Construction Tour: 1801 University Street

1801 University by Dustrud Architecture
Sited across the street from Howe Field, the new apartments at 1801 University Street will be located about as close to the University of Oregon as possible. Slated for an August opening, the 20-unit, five-story project anchors the southeast corner at 18th and University and will provide residents with great views from its rooftop deck over the UO campus to its immediate north. 

The twenty apartments include 3- and 4-bedroom units with large bedrooms and a centrally located common gathering area. Amenities include a full complement of appliances in each of the units (including a washer & dryer), free internet access, and air conditioning. The project also boasts enhanced security provisions (including secure underground parking, keycard access, and intercom), which further help set 1801 University apart from rival developments. 

Like other recent projects by its architect Dustrud Architecture, 1801 University is eco-friendly and energy-efficient. Among its many features, the development has 100% on-site storm water management and retention. 

1801 University is yet another in the burgeoning crop of student housing developments crowding an increasingly competitive market for upscale student housing near the University of Oregon campus. It is also among the first to be developed immediately south of campus, heralding a change in scale and character for the immediate area.
