719-bed complex aims to ease housing crunch at Tennessee State University

May 31, 2024
Cobblestone Development is building a 280,000-square-foot complex in Nashville adjacent to the university.

A $180 million student housing complex will be built adjacent to Tennessee State University in Nashville and will provide 719 bed for students.

WSMV-TV reports that the Industrial Development Board in Nashville has approved the issuance of bonds for Cobblestone Development's project, Cobblestone Village Residences.

It is scheduled to open in 2026, and construction is expected to begin in June.

The development will encompass 280,000 square feet and feature two buildings with 155 units. The complex will offer a variety of floor plans to meet the needs of students including five-bed, four-bed and three-bed configurations.

Cobblestone says the six-story buildings are designed with a 5+ podium structure and will incorporate a 10,500-square-foot bio-retention system.

“This project is not just a construction endeavor; it is a comprehensive solution designed to address the social crisis of student housing at TSU, offering a market-driven approach to a longstanding challenge,” Cobblestone Development said.

Prior to the 2022-23 school year, Tennessee State began renting out space in hotels and other facilities near campus for students who could not be accommodated in campus housing.
