A PPP betweenHanover Pacific,Western University of Health Sciences, and the City ofPomonabroke ground on a 173k SF mixed-usegrad student housing complexcontaining 306 beds and 10k SF of faculty office space. It's on 3.6 acres adjacent to the private nonprofit campus, where land for new housing is in short supply. According toKTGYprincipalDavid Senden, the complexwon't have a rec center--grad students seldom use 'em. Instead, a hotel-style lobbyfunctioning like a coffee shopwill allow them to study by themselves in a public environment,alleviating"the sense of isolation that is typical in rigorous graduate programs." (Reached for comment, a grad student said "Who are you? How did you find me? Will you be my friend?")
