The walkable community is located near the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Savannah, Ga.—CampusWorks, Kaplan Residential and the McKinney Fund & Co. have started work on The Blake, a student housing development in Savannah, Ga. The joint venture partners plan to complete the property in time for the fall semester of 2016, and recently, CampusWorks tapped Greystar Student Living to manage The Blake.
The 270-bed Blake will be developed on a 1.12 acre site at 536 Selma St. close to Savannah’s historic downtown, but more importantly, less than a mile away from Savannah College of Art and Design and its artistic community. The college has an annual enrollment of about 11,000.
