The student housing complexes built by Core Campus, all known as The Hub, are getting mixed reviews across the nation.
Core has Hub complexes in Eugene, Ore., Oxford, Miss., Columbia, S.C., Tucson and Madison, Wisc. It sold its first Arizona apartment high-rise in Tempe in 2013 for $103 million to Inland American Communities Group. It is currently working on new complexes in Flagstaff and Corvallis, Ore.
In Flagstaff, the company is proposing a 664-bed apartment complex geared toward students on Mike’s Pike. The company is asking the city to flip/flop the zoning on the site to allow it to build retail shops on Mike’s Pike instead of Phoenix Avenue. It filed an additional site plan with the city on Monday that would allow the company to build using the existing zoning on the site.
The city of Flagstaff has rejected an appeal of staff’s approval of The Hub’s site plan.
