by Katie Sloan

Memphis, Tenn. — A public-private partnership between The Annex Group and the University of Memphis has announced plans to develop a 540-bed residence hall on the university’s campus in Tennessee. The community will offer a mix of studio, two- and four-bedroom units alongside 300 parking spaces. The property will target occupation by student athletes. Shared amenities will include study space, social gathering areas, outdoor living space and grab-and-go dining options. The community will be part of the university’s Park Avenue Campus development, which will include Tiger Park, an academic and athletic facilities complex that will be developed in phases over the next 10 years. “This housing development on Park Avenue Campus will be a game-changer for our student-athletes,” says Brooks Monaghan, the university’s head women’s soccer coach. “Living in the vicinity of where they practice, compete and train will significantly enhance their experience, and a development like this sets our university apart when it comes to recruitment.” The residence hall is expected for completion in fall 2026. The development team for the project includes architectural firm LRK.
