The project would renovate the 324 bed Hitch Suites (76,200 gsf) undergraduate residential complex, with no expansion of beds or population, and replace the existing 1-story 1,300 gsf service building with a 4,700 gsf (net 3,400 gsf) commons building to better serve the residents of the complex. The project also includes alterations to surface Parking Lot 11, which would provide a fire truck turnaround and two full- and two-mini basketball courts; relocation of fire hydrants; installation of sport court surfaces, retaining walls, site ramps, stairs, fences and gates; and installation of lighting, drinking fountains, and signage. Development of the baketball courts would remove 88 unassigned/vacant parking spaces in Lot 11; leaving 367 spaces available.
Renovation of existing structures with an addition of less than 10,000 gross square feet with no expansion of use. Develpment of an accessory structure (basketball courts) in an urban area where all necessary public services and facilities are available.
