Marquette, Mich. — EdR has broken ground on a multiple building living-learning community at Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Marquette.
More than 1,200 beds will be delivered in multiple phases, which are scheduled for delivery during the second half of 2017 and fall of 2018. The community will feature classrooms, study rooms, TV lounges and laundry facilities with robust internet and wi-fi throughout. The property will also include a large patio and lobbies designed to accommodate art shows, student events, university functions and various types of entertainment.
EdR was chosen by NMU to develop, finance, construct and manage the property through its ONE Plan, which uses the company’s equity and financial stability to fund projects on university land. Upon completion, EdR will operate the residence halls under a 75-year lease with NMU and will manage the facility, while NMU will provide residence life services.
