In 2000, the University of Akron embarked on a $200 million capital investment program known as “Landscape for Learning.” Signet led a team of the best local and national talent to provide the development structure and financing – making the goals for new prominent student housing and administrative space a reality.
One of the primary objectives of the Landscape for Learning Initiative included the development of prominent on-campus student housing – including a new Honors Facility. The Honors residence hall was established as the anchor residential project located in the heart of the campus.
The Signet team assessed the goals and vision of the University and delivered the new Honors Residence Hall through a creative financing structure. Representing the University’s first new student housing program in almost three decades, the new Honors facility was constructed in the heart of the campus which served as the catalyst for additional development in the years to come.
