Viking Circle Apartments is a student housing development on a fully fenced, access controlled 15.25 acre site. The $32 million project features 13 four-story wood framed apartment buildings, totaling 249 units, and a clubhouse with amenities. Each of the 649 bedrooms has its own private bathroom.
Surrounding the site is a wetland and creek buffer, requiring all work to be completed within the Department of Fisheries fish buffer.
Using value engineering, Dawson was able to save $4 million, which was reinvested into the project. The project was completed and opened to students an entire school season earlier than expected.
