The project will be designed, permitted, constructed, owned, and managed by the developer, Michaels Student Living, LLC, with a long-term ground lease from Dartmouth.
Phase 1 of the project will consist of significant site work and the construction of one four-story apartment building and one four-and-a-half-story building providing a total of 316 beds in 157 various-sized apartment units to be used as off-campus graduate student housing.
