Louisiana University shortlists five teams for student housing P3

Louisiana State University (LSU), USA, has shortlisted a total of five teams to develop the Nicholson Gateway student housing P3 project.

Specifically, LSU has shortlisted the following firms to carry out the student housing P3 project:

The shortlisted teams have to submit their proposals on or before 2 November 2015. Brailsford & Dunlavey and CSRS have been engaged by LSU as a collaborative team to serve as the Development Advisor.

The project, which will be developed on a design, build, finance, operate, and maintain (DBFOM) basis, will transform the largest underdeveloped tract of university-owned property that is adjacent to the campus core. The project will turn what has traditionally been the back of the campus into a new gateway district.

The new facilities will include, among others, approximately 1,260 apartment-style beds, 410 suite-style beds, study areas, meeting spaces, restaurants and about 40,000 m² of retail space.  The place aims to be part of the campus, rather than a service-oriented bypass.
