Pittsburgh — Duquesne University has finalized the sale of Brottier Hall, an apartment-style residence hall located on the university’s campus in Pittsburgh, to Radnor Property Group and Harrison Street Real Estate Capital.
The sale includes an agreement to modernize and renovate the 660-bed property. Duquesne’s office of residence life will continue to provide resident services, programming and student oversight within the building, in addition to managing room selection and assignment.
Renovations will take place over four summers, beginning in 2018. Unit upgrades will include new flooring and finishes; bathroom plumbing and electrical fixtures; vanities and bathtubs; kitchen cabinets, counter tops and appliances; and new windows throughout the building, among other improvements. Capstone On-Campus Management will manage building operations. Radnor will undertake development management responsibilities and, along with Harrison Street, will provide equity capital for the venture.
