Troy, N.Y. — The most recent phase brings project cost to approximately $60 million.
Troy, N.Y. — United Group of Companies has opened College Suites at City Station East, which offers 157 beds to graduate students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). The opening of the East building — the West and South buildings opened in earlier phases — puts the project, College Suites at City Station, at full capacity with a total of 151 apartment suites to accommodate up to 396 students. The three residential buildings are within walking distance to campus.
Like West, the new East building's ground floor consists of multiple retail spaces. Plum Dandy frozen yogurt and Birkmayer Travel are scheduled to move into two of the spaces this fall.
An enclosed underground parking garage with 88 spaces is dedicated to retail customers and opened in August. There are an additional 98 resident parking spaces now available in a parking lot at the rear of the East building. So far, $60 million has been invested into the approximately 247,000 square feet of the City Station neighborhood. The general contractor was BBL Campus Facilities, and the architect was QPK Design.
