Winner for Ohlone College P3

A preferred bidder has been chosen to deliver a student housing project for Ohlone Community College in Newark, California.

The college will enter into a strategic partnership with Gilbane to develop the Ohlone Community College District, which will deliver housing for 3-400 students, in both single student and family configurations.

As well as the new housing, a number of other features are being considered for the site, including a childcare center for student parents, to be operated by a third-party service provider; options for accessibility of food in proximity to the community; and student counseling services.

“Gilbane recognizes the importance of affordable student housing across the country, and we are so pleased to bring our expertise in partnering with higher education institutions and in creating dynamic student communities to meet the housing needs of the students of Ohlone College,” said Geoff Eisenacher, senior development director with Gilbane Development Company.

Construction is expected to begin prior to the Fall of 2023, allowing for student occupancy by July 2025.
