Clancy & Theys Construction Company provided construction management services for the University Hill development; a 387,000 square foot mixed-use development featuring 8+ Food & Drink establishments from some of the best in the Carolinas, a 30,000 square foot fitness club and UHILL Walls, one of the largest concentrations of mural art in the Southeast.
The apartments are 4-stories of wood frame construction with 269 studio, one, two or three-bedroom apartments. Each apartment features spacious, ultra-modern, high-tech interiors complete with latch entry hardware, samsung black stainless appliances, vinyl wood plank flooring, European cabinets, quartz countertops*, delta faucets and, of course, huge bedrooms and closets. Each unit also includes nest programmable thermostats, custom light fixtures in kitchen, bath & apartment entry, full-sized front-loading washer/dryer, expansive European style windows, cable and high-speed internet, and sound proofing enhancement throughout community.
University Hill offers its residents community spaces encouraging them to socialize, network and entertain. These spaces include a co-working lounge, coffee bar, gaming area, an office supply center, USB power outlets, collaboration rooms, video conferencing capabilities, and more. Outdoor spaces feature a saltwater pool with expansive sun deck, grills, green eggs, pizza ovens, vegetable garden and four community greenspaces featuring outdoor seating and a hammock lounge. University Hill is was also constructed to be pet-friendly featuring ground floor enclosed patios with pet turf and 6-foot privacy fences, a pet spa with self-serve pet wash, and an expansive pet park with pet turf & agility equipment.
By analyzing existing on-site materials, such as asphalt parking surfaces, concrete slabs-on-grade, and existing CMU walls Clancy & Theys was able to develop a plan for re-use of these crushed materials on-site, saving the project thousands of dollars in material import/export costs.
The development will also include an art project called the “Murals at University Hill, which would be a collection of over 25,000 Sq. Ft of murals from artists across North Carolina.
