Innovative GU-area building, The Gee, wins a major award for student housing

A student housing project near Gonzaga University has landed a major architecture award.

The building, developed by Buzz Price on a reclaimed residential lot at 817 E. Nora, won a Gold Nugget Grand Award for best campus housing in a competition sponsored by Builder Magazine and PCBC, a West Coast consortium of builders.

The building was constructed in 2011 by Coeur d'Alene based ActiveWest Builders. The construction company also received a Gold Nugget Grand Award for best green sustainable residential, for the Meadow Ranch building in Coeur d'Alene.

It also won two awards of merit for best senior housing and best detached home under 1,700 square feet.

The Gee (the name more or less connotes Gonzaga University) also has received the LEED-Platinum Certification via the United States Green Building Council.

The Gee architect was RnD Architects
