Plans call for graduate housing near the isolated Lot 13 off Valero. That may be the next on-campus housing we see break ground.
The new apts are "low-density," whatever that means.
The backyard of my childhood home abuts the lot. A bunch of people in the College Park neighborhood where I lived (and my folks still live) have objected to more apartments built there, but my parents love it. They think it makes a lot more sense than students still commuting in from the Medical Center and beyond. It will be served by the campus shuttle as well.
