Work ahead of schedule for Campus Heights; Phase 3 will create more than 300 bedrooms PSU students

Posted

Construction is underway for phase three of Campus Heights, which will house hundreds of Penn State Harrisburg students when it is completed.

“We are progressing nicely for sure and are ahead of schedule,” Matt Genesio, CEO and co-founder of College Town Communities, told the Press & Journal in an email.

This portion of the Campus Heights project is bordered by North Lawrence, Dauphin and West High streets.

Plans for phase three were approved by the Lower Swatara commissioners in October 2018.

Residences were demolished on 32 parcels and combined into one parcel that will have 14 buildings with a total of 84 units with 336 bedrooms for Penn State Harrisburg students.

Genesio said crews were working on about 60 percent of the project, including the clubhouse and just more than half of the residential buildings, and work will start on the rest in spring when the weather breaks.

Genesio anticipated that the clubhouse would be completed by May, and said that current and future Campus Heights students would be able to use it in the spring.

He said the project is estimated to be completed in the fall and there will be a “few dozen” students living in this portion of Campus Heights during the 2020-2021 school year.

The building should be ready for full student occupancy by fall 2021, Genesio said.

College Town Communities has several other housing locations already near Penn State Harrisburg. Campus Heights is at 505 N. Lawrence St. The Schoolhouse Lofts are at 232 Ann St. Campus Heights Townhouses are at 355 Gina Lane.
