The Avenue Orono Student Housing Site

Orono, ME

Location(s): 1 Hudson Street
Orono, Maine

Client: Park 7 Group

Size: 33 buildings, 270 units

WBRC provided site development, planning, and permitting for The Avenue, a 870-bed student residential community in Orono, Maine, for New York-based developer Park7 now under construction. The project comprises mixed-housing units, recreational buildings and facilities, a Dunkin Donuts outlet, gas station, and pedestrian/cycling path.

WBRC worked closely with the Town of Orono, Park7, and Orono Land Trust to mitigate any impact of the development on the area’s natural habitat. A volleyball court, maintenance and housing units were relocated to create a buffer zone around the major vernal pools.
