Welcome, college boys! And, girls.
From BU Today:
The Boston University School of Medicine (MED) recently purchased an 86,000-square-foot parcel of land on Albany Street, where someday soon an apartment building for medical students will rise.
“The addition of on-campus housing has been something that the medical school has talked about for decades,” says President Robert A. Brown. “With the support of our friends and alumni, the concept of student housing at BUSM will become a reality.”
The 817 Albany St. property, located just a few blocks from the medical school facilities, will be developed into a 9-story building with 104 units that will accommodate upwards of 208 first-year medical students. Rent for students in the new facility is targeted at approximately $850 a month.
Sadly, Liquor Land is closed, so the college kids will have to go elsewhere to stock up. (Med students don’t have time for parties, though, do they?)
