Los Angeles — The 133-unit project exceeded its goal of achieving LEED Gold.

The Residences at 7thLos Angeles — The on-campus, furnished, 133-unit Residences at 7th on the Southwestern Law School campus has been awarded LEED Platinum certification. The Residences at 7th is a living-learning community that was developed by the law school and Corsini Stark Architects, Symphony Development and MATT Construction. It was built to achieve a LEED Gold rating.

The community is the first on-campus housing for Southwestern, which was founded in 1911. The $20 million facility is managed by Southwestern. Financing for the development came from tax-exempt California Municipal Finance Authority Revenue Bonds, issued in October 2011, as well as by private donations raised during the law school’s capital campaign. The school is well-known for restoring the art-deco-era Bullocks Wilshire building, which now houses the law library.
