The Laurel – Luxury Student Housing Community Opens

Taylor Helps Deliver 466-Bed Housing Complex Near Syracuse University

Syracuse, N.Y. – TAYLOR, a leading regional commercial General Contractor, recently completed construction of The Laurel in the City of Syracuse, New York. TAYLOR teamed with Passero Associates, on behalf of a national owner/developer, for construction of the 275,000-square-foot, six-story student apartment building on a 1.63-acre site at the southeast corner of East Fayette Street and Forman Avenue on Syracuse’s East Side. For students, the building is located just north of the Syracuse University campus.

“We were proud to help build and deliver first class Syracuse student housing for this repeat client and national firm,” said TAYLOR President, Karl Schuler. “Our project team overcame a late start and multiple obstacles to deliver a great product on-time for our customer.”

The Laurel features 190 units and 466 beds, consisting of 16 studios, 32 one-bedroom, 67 two-bedroom, 16 three-bedroom, and 59 four-bedroom apartments. On-site parking includes 40 at-grade and 152 secure underground garage spaces. The fully furnished apartments include full-sized washer/dryer, stainless steel ENERGY STAR kitchen appliances, quartz kitchen countertops and flatscreen TVs. Apartments are leased by the bed and professionally managed, with 24/7 emergency maintenance available. The Laurel offers an array of amenities, including a fitness center, a clubroom, study rooms, a study lounge, and an outdoor courtyard with BBQ grilling areas, firepits, a large outdoor TV, and games. The development also includes a rooftop terrace with a large outdoor TV, and seating.

This is TAYLOR’s second large-scale multifamily development built for this national owner/developer, helping to complete College Town Rochester at the intersection of Mt. Hope and Elmwood Avenues in the City of Rochester. TAYLOR was responsible for the construction of two buildings at the mixed-use office and retail development, which included construction of a main 4-story, approximately 220,000-square-foot residential/retail building; and a 3-story, 69,000-square-foot residential/retail building. Both buildings combined for a total of 154 high end loft apartment units called the Mount Hope Lofts.
