A conceptual view of the proposed Honors College complex.
An agreement between the University of Arizona and a Texas-based developer to build an Honors College complex, including a 1,000-bed dorm, north of the campus is already receiving serious legal scrutiny.
Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik has requested that City Attorney Mike Rankin provide a formal legal review of the memorandum of understanding between the UA and American Campus Communities.
The Austin, Texas-based developer is one the largest student housing developers in the country and owns one of the two city blocks where the UA wants to build the Honors College complex, including a six-story dorm. The UA owns the other part of the property.
