As housing demand continues to increase, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held tomorrow, April 21, at the site for Wayne State University’s Anthony Wayne Drive Apartments in Detroit.
The project will expand the university’s on-campus housing offerings by 841 beds, with 17,000 square feet allotted for retail space and 9,700 square feet for a new student health services center.
The new apartments are part of WSU’s 10-year master plan and will accommodate students from around the world who want to live and study in Midtown. In Sept. 2016, the Wayne State Board of Governors approved a campus housing partnership with Corvias Campus Living, a firm that specializes in enhancing community structures on college and university campuses.
A reception will be hosted immediately following the groundbreaking at the adjacent St. Andrew’s Hall, where visual renderings and a virtual reality tour of the project will be available for viewing. The units are expected to be completed in the next 18 to 24 months.
The event will take place from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at 5235 Anthony Wayne Dr.
