Calhoun Lofts is a 10 story, 575,000 square foot developer style loft project developed by the University of Houston for graduate and professional students.
It is designed to compete with grade “A” developer projects being built in the city. Calhoun Lofts is intended to reposition the University’s main campus as a residential environment and signal a transformation of the main campus into a series of academic communities. Calhoun lofts has 744 residential units, from efficiency apartments to two bedroom units, restaurants, gathering and meetings areas, and an open air roof patio and conference area with skyline views for University and resident events. All the units are functional apartments, with full kitchens and exposed concrete ceilings and floors for a modern, urban look and feel. Five wings ranging in height from 8 to 10 feet and surround the landscaped common areas, while the exterior is a combination of different masonry types and metal panels.
