Plans have been announced for the construction in south Flagstaff of a student housing project that may ultimately consist of more than two dozen different-sized structures built in a community-like setting.
The Austin-based Campus Advantage, one of the largest student housing owners and managers in the country, has said that it wants to build a series of townhouses and other residential structures at the southwest intersection of Lone Tree Road and J.W. Powell Boulevard.
The project, officially called Liv + Flagstaff, would be built on a 15-acre site and would see the construction of just under 200 individual units, housing a total of 702 beds.
Altogether, the combined building space will come in at just a little under 340,000 square feet.
Designed to serve students from the nearby Northern Arizona University and Coconino Community College, the project would additionally include a fitness center, clubhouse, swimming pool, oblong-shaped dog park, and a network of walking trails.
Parking for nearly 550 vehicles would be provided in both surface parking and carport space.
An exact building schedule for the housing project has not yet been announced.
Founded in 2003, Campus Advantage, which specializes in student housing property management, acquisitions, and development, has in recent years aggressively expanded its portfolio with properties now in 24 states.
