Wireless Access Point Setup for Apartment Complex

We are looking into setting up wireless internet access for the whole complex. I am trying to see the best options and ideas. Here are a few questions.
1) We would have around 200 users at max (accounting for people to have more than one device or computer connected. Such as Xbox360 and whatnot). What speeds should we consider from a ISP.?
2) Should we get more than one ISP feed?
3) How many wireless access points should we get? (Ruffly we are looking at 5-6)
4) Where should the WAP's be placed around the complex? Considering the apartments are brick outside and inside regular wood frame/drywall construction type. Also should they be inside or outdoor WAP's.
5)What hardware should be considered? (switches, WAP's, ect...)
Here is a layout of the complex
I know a bit about networking and computers, but I am no pro. I have never done a project this large. Any input or ideas would be great.
