Sundt Construction, Inc., a full-service general contractor and a member of multiple AGC chapters, was selected as the design-build contractor for the $143 million project, which includes two residential buildings above all ground-floor retail, and an adjacent parking structure. Upon completion, the residence halls will house 608 beds in double-occupancy student rooms, 32 single-occupancy student rooms, three staff apartments and three visiting scholar studios. 

"We have a longstanding history with San Diego State University and believe our work on South Campus Plaza will further solidify that great relationship," said Sundt Area Manager Jon Wald. "These new facilities will not only enhance the quality of life for students and the campus community, but also create a pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining destination for the community as a whole."

Designed by SVA Architects and SGPA Architecture and Planning to achieve LEED Silver certification from the United States Green Building Council, the project spans nearly 350,000 square feet and features student learning spaces, multipurpose rooms, faculty offices, study areas, lounges and a community kitchen. Student amenities in the building also will include a mail room, bicycle storage, laundry room and trash chutes. 

"At this time when challenges are greater than ever for university students, SVA is very pleased to be leading the design team for the South Campus Plaza project," said Robert Simons, AIA President & Partner of SVA Architects. "Students will be accommodated with exceptional housing and retail offerings as they seek higher education. We are very grateful to be working with SDSU to execute their vision for a campus that supports and inspires our region’s future leaders."

"It’s been a pleasure to work alongside Sundt, SVA Architects, CBRE and San Diego State University to create a bustling environment for students," said Keith Pittsford, Principal at SGPA Architecture and Planning. "Our role on South Campus Plaza has been to provide thriving retail and restaurant opportunities while anticipating lifestyle trends of students to enrich their lives on campus."

Located immediately south of the SDSU Transit Center, between Hardy Avenue and Montezuma Road, South Campus Plaza is expected to be completed in late 2016.

Sundt Construction, Inc. is one of the country’s largest and most respected general contractors.
