Hermitage, PA, 1BJuly 15, 2015– Student Housing Business Magazine recently honored Hudson Lofts located at Penn State University, the Behrend College campus with a 2015 Innovator Award for Best Architecture and Design with fewer than 300 beds. Hudson Lofts is a 92,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art luxury student housing facility that opened in August 2014 to 172 student residents.
“This was quite an honor,” Tyler Hudson said upon receiving the award. Hudson is the President of Hudson Property Management of Hermitage, PA as well as the developer and owner of Hudson Lofts.
Celebrating the best of the best in on- and off-campus housing, Innovator Awards are given to the best projects and programs every year. More than 70 industry judges chose just 21 winners from more than 120 entries. The Innovator Awards ceremony is the culmination of the three-day InterFace Student Housing Conference in Austin, Texas. This year’s Innovator Awards were given to projects completed between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2014, in various on- and off-campus categories.
Hudson always knew that Hudson Lofts had the potential for greatness exemplified by the property’s selection for this award. He described the process of the building’s development, stating:
“The Lofts is the result of an extensive market research study with the faculty, staff, and students of Penn State Behrend. Behrend was experiencing a housing shortage with Students living in local hotels and dormitory lounges converted to quads. We knew that we could provide students with a living option that was current, safe, and comfortable, but decided to take student housing a step (or two) further by offering 21st century, state-of-the-art living for Penn State Behrend students that exceeded their expectations, and we packaged it all in a beautiful building with the atmosphere of a luxury boutique hotel complete with an 1952 MG as the lobby centerpiece!”
Hudson and his company strive to provide award-winning quality housing to the current and future students of Penn State Behrend for years to come.
