Nestled in Clemson, S.C., The Bixby on College redefines student housing. Walking distance from Clemson University and downtown, it seamlessly combines urban living with nature’s beauty. Surrounded by lush greenery, nature trails, and retail and dining options, The Bixby offers a unique living experience.

With 109 units, ranging from two to four bedrooms, this five-story development stands out architecturally. Overcoming permitting challenges, it features a mix of materials stone, brick, metal, concrete, and fiber cement siding.

The Bixby’s success is evident in its rapid occupancy rates. Achieving full capacity in just 11 days of pre-leasing, with a substantial waiting list, reflects its appeal. The project offers a comprehensive amenity package, including a fitness center, versatile study spaces, a gaming lounge, and a resort-style infinity pool.

Inside, fully furnished units feature modern amenities such as stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, hardwood-style flooring, and expansive windows.

The Bixby fosters community through monthly events and a roommate matching service. Its exceptional design, ability to overcome challenges, and create an inviting living environment make it deserving of recognition in the industry.

From the Judges
This project feels very student-esque. The exterior architecture is fun and has movement, including the street-oriented retail. There are lots of creative spaces throughout, and a fun pool area.
