MEMPHIS, TN. The Scion Group has been engaged by EdR (formerly Allen & O’Hara Inc.) to explore the feasibility of a contemplated new student housing community on the campus of Colorado State University – Pueblo. Utilizing new and existing data, Scion – which previously created a student housing master plan as a consultant to the University – will conduct a comprehensive market and demand analysis.
Scion’s work will include conducting student focus groups, interviews with campus administrators and examination of the off-campus rental market. In addition, Scion will review existing qualitative and quantitative student demand data and study enrollment and occupancy trends. Scion will verify demand and rental rates for the new on-campus student housing community contemplated by EdR and CSU-Pueblo.
