Boston — A public-private partnership between American Campus Communities (ACC) and Northeastern University has opened LightView, an 825-bed residence hall located adjacent to the southeastern border of the university’s campus in Boston. The 20-story development offers four-bedroom units with shared or private accommodations. Community amenities include social and recreational lounges, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 24-hour academic success center and 2,000 square feet of retail. The building will be privately owned and operated by ACC. Accordingly, its units will not be part of Northeastern’s housing lottery system. Instead, third-, fourth-, and fifth-year students will be able to lease units from ACC while still being held to the same codes of conduct that are in place at other on-campus housing properties at Northeastern. The project — designed by CUBE 3 and Elkus Manfredi Architects — was fully leased nine months prior to opening.
