EdR Closes Financing And Begins Construction Of On-campus Development At West Chester University

Stocks in this article: EDR

EdR (NYSE:EDR), a leader in the ownership, development and management of collegiate housing, today announced the closing of financing and commencement of construction on a $57.5 million third-party collegiate housing development on the campus of the West Chester University of Pennsylvania (WCU) in West Chester, Pa.

“We are proud to have been selected by West Chester University Foundation to partner with them again as they continue to enhance and grow their student housing,” said Randy Churchey, president and chief executive officer of EdR. “This will be our 19th development within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and we are very pleased to continue our successful track record at WCU.”

This development continues the university’s Housing Renewal Initiative that began in 2001 to renovate student housing on West Chester University’s campus.

The new housing — named Commonwealth Hall — will be complete by the summer of 2014. It will provide 653 beds in a variety of floor plans from single-occupancy apartments to shared-living suites for up to six residents. Amenities will include fitness center, study lounges and a full residence life program. The university’s Student Health Services, Counseling Center and Emergency Medical Services will be on the lower level of this eight-story building.

“We are excited to continue this initiative to revitalize our campus,” said Rich Przywara, executive director of the West Chester University Foundation. Commonwealth Hall will be owned by University Student Housing LLC, a subsidiary of the West Chester University Foundation, which has constructed and currently operates 2,311 beds in five residence halls on campus.

“As high school students visit our university, they will see a welcoming and attractive campus that complements our academic reputation,” added Przywara. “This combination is everything young people could want from their college experience.”

“Prospective students visiting the University will see a very attractive campus that complements our academic reputation,” says West Chester University President Greg Weisenstein. “This new residence hall will help us to continue offering the best possible collegiate experience for our students in and outside the classroom.”
