Loch Sheldrake, N.Y. — Goshen, N.Y.-based The Ruby Group has completed construction for a new student housing project at Sullivan County Community College in Loch Sheldrake. The $1.5 million project was designed in a townhome style and contains a total of 48 beds. Three of the bedrooms are handicap accessible. Residences also contain living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms. The new dorms were constructed with modular units and resemble traditional New England homes, with pitched roofs, clapboard siding and porches. The Ruby Group will be seeking LEED and Energy Star certification for the project.
The new dorm was built in a public-private partnership between The Ruby Group and Sullivan County Community College. The school is leasing the land to the developer, which is responsible for building and operating the dorm. Longley Jones Management will be managing the property on behalf of The Ruby Group.
