Miami — The hall is welcoming 620 students this year.
Miami — Florida International University has opened Parkview Hall at the Modesto A. Maidique Campus in West Miami-Dade. Moss & Associates constructed the $45 million project that broke ground in June 2012.
Parkview includes community lounges, a multipurpose room and additional areas to accommodate residential life programs and activities. Designed by HADP Architecture, Inc. and HKS Architects, it features new urbanism concepts and a pedestrian street linking the housing complexes with covered walkways, outdoor seating areas, green spaces, retail areas and other amenities.
Parkview will also serve as a hurricane evacuation center for the FIU resident student population and meets building occupancy standards for a Category 5 hurricane.
