Boca Raton, Fla. — A public-private partnership between Lynn University and Capstone Development Partners has opened Capstone Apartments, a $40.5 million residence hall located on the university’s campus in Boca Raton. The 112,369-square-foot community offers 342 beds in studio, two- and four-bedroom configurations for upperclassmen and graduate students. Shared amenities include a community kitchen, entertainment lounge, flexible workspace, multi-purpose room, study lounges and laundry facilities on each floor. The development was designed to achieve LEED Silver certification. Sustainable development and design elements include the use of locally sourced materials, solar sunshades, low-E glazing, high socially responsible investment (SRI) roof materials, low-flow fixtures, a high-efficiency HVAC system and LED lighting. Capstone Management Partners manages the facility, while the university provides resident life services, support, IT and campus safety services. Gerrits Construction, Design Collective, Donahue Architecture and Design and Provident Resources Group were part of the project’s design-build team.
