Bouquet Gardens expansion approved
City planners have approved the University’s plan to expand its Bouquet Gardens student housing complex with the addition of a four-story, 155-bed structure at 315 Oakland Avenue.
Associate Vice Chancellor for Business Eli Shorak said the project’s construction manager, PJ Dick, is in the process of securing permits and will begin active construction soon.
Project drawings by Perkins Eastman Architects show the proposed dorm and its juxtaposition among its Oakland Avenue neighbors.
The site was purchased from Children’s Hospital earlier this year for nearly $1.4 million and the property was rezoned from high-density residential zoning to the educational/medical institution district designation.
