CollegeTown Development—and our affiliate, ConoverBond— have long utilized public-private partnerships to develop classroom facilities, student housing solutions, and other academic projects. These developments have included the Spokane Community College Biotech Academy, Spokane Public School District’s Informational Technology Academy, and 130,000 square feet of downtown Spokane classroom space.

Most significantly, CollegeTown Development has, since 2001, partnered with schools to create unique “urban living centers.” These mixed-use projects have sought to not only provide creative solutions to the challenge of student housing, but also bolster local economies by attracting college-orientated businesses and students to downtown locations. Our projects distinguish themselves because they incorporate four key characteristics:

  • Strong relationship with the college or university
  • Innovative, efficient design and construction
  • Economic impact through the introduction of a retail component
  • Active presence in the community

Because of our commitment to these principles, our projects have won numerous accolades, including the “Best Economic Restructuring Story Award,” bestowed on us by the State of Washington for our work with Eastern Washington University and the City of Cheney.
