Terrace Heights, once featured in TIME Magazine for its modern design and amenities such as state-of-the-art GE appliances and intercoms, is being upgraded through creative solutions of the Mills Group design team.
These vintage-style apartments are convenient for WVU students and young professionals. Next door to the WVU College of Law along University Avenue, Terrace Heights is conveniently located between the WVU’s Downtown, Evansdale, and Health Sciences Campuses.
Unique floor plans showcase mid-century modern design elements such as floating stair treads, textured brick and block interior walls, exposed beams and sunken floors.
European-style corridors, gardens, private exterior spaces and public common spaces dote the walkable community with lush landscaping. The existing pool is planned to be infilled to provide public gathering space with an outdoor grilling area, fire pit, and synthetic turf lawn.
Taking advantage of the terraced topography and views of the Monongahela River valley and beyond, renovations include a public rooftop terrace including a hot tub and leisure area. The exposed southern-orientation of the roofs create opportunity for passive renewable energy such as photovoltaic array.
