About 840 Columbus Avenue
Northeastern University & American Campus Communities have proposed a 26-story, approximately 525,000 square foot mixed-use building containing a five-story podium of academic/office space, and approximately 975 student beds on the remaining 21 stories.
The Project will include a combination of efficiency units (studios), one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and four-bedroom units. The Project would also host a spectrum of student amenities, including a social lounge, fitness center, Academic Success Center, and laundry room. It is anticipated that approximately 2,800 square feet of the ground floor space will contain a food and beverage service.
The Project site, which currently functions as a surface parking lot, is bounded by Columbus Avenue to the north, Melnea Cass Boulevard to the east, Tremont Street to the south, and the existing Renaissance Park building to the west.
