Birmingham, Ala. — Capstone Development Partners (CDP), in conjunction with the University of North Alabama, celebrated the completion of Olive and Mattielou residence halls with a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony.
Building one, Mattielou Hall, was completed on schedule in August 2015 and welcomed 335 students for the start of the fall 2015 semester. Building two, Olive Hall, was completed in January 2016 and welcomed 429 students at the start of the winter 2016 semester.
The two new residence halls will house mostly first-year students, and feature suite-style single- and double-occupancy rooms, each with its own bathroom.
The buildings total approximately 192,000 square feet and offer ground level common areas featuring meeting and study spaces, management and residence life offices and activity areas which include pool tables, classic arcade games, study desks and TV lounges. The upper floors of the buildings also offer smaller, more private common areas.
