The Core Apartment Residences

Situated on the southern edge of the Washington University Medical Center campus, two historically significant structures had been underutilized for many years – Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children and the Central Institute for the Deaf. The university selected Lawrence Group to help transform the properties into a modern multi-family development while preserving the historical value of the original structures.

Today the Core Apartment Residences provide 160 market-rate multifamily residences geared toward medical students and 17 admission suites, which provide temporary lodging for prospective students during recruitment. In addition, the buildings furnish amenities to both residents and medical campus students including community lounge space, study, music and game rooms, a large fitness center and outdoor spaces.

The new concept was largely inspired by the original William B. Ittner designs, both from a site planning strategy and in the interior design of core common areas in each building. Both state and federal historic tax credits were used in realizing the rebirth of these historic institutions.
