The Indy is a student housing project in Marietta, Georgia near Kennesaw State University in the Town Village mixed use complex near the Kennesaw State Athletic Complex.
This project is 5 stories of Type III wood construction with 172 units and 543 beds. The building wraps around a 6.5 story precast parking garage. Many amenity spaces were included in the design such as: lobby, club room, small group room, large communal study room, leasing area, yoga room, fitness center, and a rooftop terrace.
There are extensive retaining and basement conditions to account for the approximately 30 feet of fall on the site. Shallow foundations were used for the entire project.
