TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A Cleveland-based development group has submitted a
formal site plan to convert land at Dorr and Westwood into an off-campus
student housing center.
The NRP Group filed the plan this week to the Toledo
Planning Commission. The site would include construction of multiple buildings.
Some 4-story, others 3-story buildings, and in total there would be 200 units
and 596 beds.
While the University of Toledo is not involved with the
proposal, Matt Schroeder with the University of Toledo Foundation says he's not
"We've seen a lot of attention over the past two to three
years tied to student housing," Schroeder said. "Reason being a lot of the
product within walking distance of our main campus is dated."
While Schroeder says he's excited about the possibility
of a major new investment in the community, he considers the new housing site
plan a double-edged sword.
"I think it's saying a lot about the direction the
University of Toledo is going, but also gives me a little concern there's not
enough demand to go around to support multiple housing projects."
Another area being targeted for off-campus student housing
is along Bancroft, just east of the main campus.
The site plan will be reviewed by commission staffers
before any recommendations are made.
