Video Overview of the UK Campus Revitalization Development
University of Kentucky needed not only a development partner, but a financial partner to expand and revitalize the entirety of its student housing solution.
This partnership that began in December 2011 has already produced a 601-bed living-learning facility dedicated to UK’s Honors program — Central Hall I & II — which opened in summer 2013. Five buildings with 2,381 more beds are on track to open summer 2014.
This housing renaissance is one aspect of fulfilling “The Kentucky Promise,” Dr. Capilouto’s initiative to revitalize the campus, enhance undergraduate education, offer more opportunities to young Kentuckians through scholarships and continue a nearly 150-year legacy of education, research and service to the Commonwealth.
The $25.8 million project is being financed through EdR’s On-Campus Equity Plan — the ONE Plan — which uses the company’s equity and financial stability to fund projects on university-owned land. This gives the university access to a single, trusted partner and helps create substantial long-term financial benefits for UK and EdR.
We hope you will enjoy this video which overviews these developments and looks at what’s to come in future years.
