Public-Private Partnership to Break Ground on 556-Bed Community at Duquesne University

by Katie Sloan

Pittsburgh — Duquesne University, in a public-private partnership with Harrison Street and Radnor Property Group, has announced plans to develop a 556-bed residence hall.

The community will be located on Forbes Avenue within the university’s campus in Pittsburgh. The 11-story building will feature bicycle parking, a fitness area and outdoor courtyards accessible to residents, students attending the university and the greater Pittsburgh community. The development is targeting upperclassmen and graduate students, and will offer 216 apartment units upon completion.

“We are excited to be able to offer an additional, vibrant living and learning environment in which our upper-year and graduate students will continue to build a sense of community,” says Duquesne University President Ken Gormley. “In addition to the opening of the proposed College of Osteopathic Medicine, this collaboration with our wonderful partners at Harrison Street and Radnor will also enable us to complete the Forbes Avenue corridor in 2024.”

The project is anticipating LEED silver certification and is the third project developed between the public-private partnership.
