Mixed-Use Village – Ph I

Greensboro, NC

After completing their Neighborhood Master Plan in 2010, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) selected Lord Aeck Sargent to design the first phase of the new mixed-use residential village.

The Village, located adjacent to the existing campus will include 800 new residential units as well as mixed-use spaces.

The goals of the project is to provide more on-campus housing for students as well as revitalize the streetscape and neighborhood as part of a larger City of Greensboro Lee Street Corridor plan. Additional program will likely include academic and social spaces that create a living/learning environment.

Important community features will be:

  • Sensitivity to existing trees and community open spaces
  • Blending the campus and the neighborhood
  • Providing a template and an anchor for future development along the Lee Street corridor
