The Grove at 30th and Chestnut will be opening in the fall of 2014, and if you haven't gotten your skyscraper fix from the tallest student housing in the United States, Brandywine Realty Trust and Campus Crest aren't done.
When you think student housing, Campus Crest wants you to think vertically, which is why their Cira Centre South project isn't complete. With 33 floors already under construction, Campus Crest is aiming even higher on Walnut Street.
Remaining cryptic and making no official statements, Campus Crest does have the capital to build. With no neighborly resistance to development on the west bank on the Schuylkill River, University City and Campus Crest have been free to dabble in experimental design, tall design, free of community intervention.
