Drake University is now able to offer state-of-the-art suite-style student housing to an expanding student body. FEH Architects Inc. successfully blended architectural styles in the historic Drake neighborhood and Drake campus to create a very modern look and feel. 
The three-building complex incorporates many amenities attractive to today’s student including two modern fitness centers, game room, group study rooms with floor-to-ceiling dry-erase boards, access to satellite television services and wireless high-speed Internet. The units are suite-style apartments and are fully furnished. Retail tenants include Starbucks and a local sports bar/restaurant. The project also implemented a strict security system, including security cameras and card-controlled access. In an effort to reach out to the neighborhood associations, a number of older homes that previously sat on the site were offered to local residents and moved to empty lots in the surrounding area.
