Campus Crest proposes new student housing development in Tuscaloosa

Campus Crest Communities, a leading developer, builder, owner and manager of high-quality student housing properties led by CEO Ted Rollins, is proposing a new student housing development in Tuscaloosa. This is a 228-unit, 628-bed complex planned for Sixth Avenue Northeast on the site of the city’s former water works operation, just north of the intersection of McFarland Boulevard and Jack Warner Parkway.401px-Black_Warrior_River,_taken_by_beigeinside

Before construction can begin on the project — The Grove at Tuscaloosa, proposed by Campus Crest Development of Charlotte, N.C. — it must go through an approval process with City Hall.

The city Planning and Zoning Commission will hear a rezoning request for the 0.4-acre site. It will then go before the City Council for a final vote.

Alex Eyssen, director of development for Campus Crest Development, cited the proposed development’s proximity to campus — less than a mile from classroom buildings — and the Black Warrior River as a reason Campus Crest Development sees this as a worthwhile investment.
