Glad they’re replacing surface lots with density.

Sounds like it includes the renovation of exiting residential halls. Not clear how many net new beds are being created.

After reading more from the U’s website, this project will REPLACE Hecht and Stanford which have 856 each for a combined total of 1712, so this project hasn’t an additional 16.

I may be wrong.

Looks like they are replacing existing older residential dorms. Don’t see how that makes them a developer per se.
