Client : FCS Development Corporation


The Student Residences at York University project will serve as a catalyst for the University's strategy to address student housing expectations on campus and to enhance student life at York's Keele Campus. While Phase 1 design is currently underway, the process leading up to this point is already three years old and can be attributed to the extremely careful and complex user groups, stakeholders, and Municipal planning considered during the master planning phase of the project. Estimated completion for Phase 1 will be the summer of 2015. As a part of the design team - working with Campus Suites Ultimate Student Living - the project was awarded through an RFP process, with ARK and Campus Suites selected as the preferred proponents in 2010. This multi-phase mixed-use development located at the corner of Pond Road and Sentinel Road will seek to integrate numerous student residences - approximately 2,200 beds - with various office, retail, and affordable housing programs in order to support an urban student lifestyle community at York University.
