East Campus Town Center Plan Moves Forward

2012 Proposed East Campus development plan. In the new plan, the proposed hotel is 12 stories tall and stretches along Route 1

Yesterday, a scaled back plan for the new East Campus Town Center at the corner of Route 1 and Paint Branch Pkwy has been approved. See more about the news here.

The development will include a 300-room hotel, 10,000 sq ft of conference place, retails and other amenities.

The project, initially conceived as a 22-acre town center development, has been impacted by the economic downturn and market changes. The university has since decided to redevelop larger portions of its campus as part of a “systematic project-by-project development strategy”.

    I see that a site is being held for a possible County garage. Would it be financially feasible for that to be a City garage instead? I would rather the parking fees go to the City than the County.
