Vanderbilt West End Neighborhood
Hawkins Partners, Inc. is working with Vanderbilt University to redevelop the 13 acre West End Neighborhood, bringing the
ambitious FutureVU Master Plan to life. This project will transform the current “Greek row” neighborhood from vehicular-dominated
streets to a more sustainable, pedestrian-focused area of the campus for all students and the larger community. The planning and design process will elevate this campus neighborhood to
the level of the historic campus, while using contemporary design elements. It removes over 2.5 acres of impervious pavement and over 600 parking spaces. It expands the arboretum and provides
unique and diverse gathering areas, which enrich the broader campus.
This project will achieve LEED ND status. Phase 1 was completed in 2019. Future phases to be completed in 2020-2021.
