978-Bed, LEED® Silver Student Housing Community with Retail and Amenities
Tempo Apartments is a 296-unit, 978-bed luxury student housing community designed for University of Maryland students. The 500,000-square-foot building, which is located on a tight site along a portion of US-1 in College Park, is comprised of five levels of wood framing over three levels of concrete podium. Its location next to Paint Branch Stream necessitated the construction of a large retaining wall to ensure foundational integrity. Tempo's podium includes 1,147 square feet of retail, a 300-space cast-in-place parking garage, and 12,901 square feet of amenities. The building exterior features a façade of masonry, metal panels, fiber cement panels, and storefronts at the amenity and retail areas. Apartments feature stainless steel appliances, mobile islands, and solid surface countertops. Tempo's robust indoor/outdoor amenity package is tailored to the student lifestyle and spans multiple levels, courtyards, and rooftop terraces.
