Western Edge Student Housing
The Western Edge project seeks to create the most desirable student housing property in the Bellingham market through a mix of attractive floor plans, unit finishes, and building amenities. Herrera is the civil engineer. The 480-bed/157-unit student housing project will redevelop two parcels in downtown Bellingham and is targeting LEED Gold certification. The smaller of the two buildings (903 N State Street) is intended to provide a quiet environment for juniors, seniors, couples, graduate students, and recent graduates working in Bellingham. The larger building (929 N State Street) is intended for undergraduates seeking a more social, lively, and immersive “living-learning” experience and contains most of the project’s amenity spaces. The project has just completed design development.
