Skyvue Apartments

Location: Lansing, MI

Skyvue Apartments is a 9-story, 116 foot tall, 418,000 square foot student housing building. A P3 (public private partnership) project, Skyvue is located in Lansing, MI near Michigan State University. Despite a one month delay in construction, thanks to Ecospan not needing to be shored or requiring installation of separate load distribution members (LDM), the structural work was completed ahead of schedule.
