Student Housing Business interviews Carter’s Kyle Brock about Highland Square
Carter’s Highland Square project, located near Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss., is a revolutionary student housing product in the marketplace. The $39 million project, which Carter is developing with Chance Partners, will include 753-beds in cottage-style housing and a town square with approximately 15,000 square feet of retail space.
Kyle Brock, senior vice president of development at Carter, recently told Student Housing Business magazine, “This was a very large site, and that presented us with the opportunity to build something different than what’s currently in Oxford. We started building cottages, but we also wanted to give our project more of an urban feel. We think one of the best amenities in Oxford is the town square itself.”
Additionally, the community will feature a coffee shop, tanning facilities, study/printing lounge, media/theater center, car wash, dog park, volleyball, fitness trails and three resort-style pools. Rents will range from approximately $550-$620 per bed per month.
According to Brock, the property is now 95 percent pre-leased up from 70 percent leased at the time of the article.
