Block F

North City
San Marcos, CA
(In Progress)

Block F is the second student housing development in North City designed by Safdie Rabines Architects. The complex consists of seven buildings on a stepped site, arranged around a sloping central green. The green is anchored on one end by a pool and the other by a six-level resident amenity tower containing a TV lounge, gym, multi-purpose room and deck. The buildings house 105 units / 506 beds, and are designed as separate pavilions, linked by external bridges and stairways, avoiding long interior corridors.
