Construction of Aspire at Discovery Park starts
January 9, 2018
Aspire at Discovery Park, an $86 million, 835-bed apartment complex that is the first of many developments in the Discovery Park District breaks ground.
A joint venture between Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions and Walsh Investors, Aspire at Discovery Park is a three-building, four-story complex that will include studio, two-bedroom and four-bedroom apartments. Rental pricing of the apartments will be comparable to or lower than similar apartments in the area. The complex also has committed 18,000 square feet for community and retail space in the facilities.
“The Balfour Beatty team is excited to be the first major construction in the transformation of the west side of the Purdue University campus,” said Bob Shepko, president of Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions. “Aspire at Discovery Park will be situated in an ideal location for residents to take advantage of all that this new development will offer.”
Slated to be complete by fall 2019, the apartment complex will be located on a five-acre tract on the south side of State Street, a major east-west artery running through campus. A bus stop serving three city routes offers convenient access throughout the area. Additionally, U.S. Highway 231 sits approximately less than a mile from the site.
“It is certainly a milestone to break ground on the first of many developments in the Discovery Park District,” said Jeff Kanable, director of the Discovery Park District (formerly called Purdue Innovation District). “In just a few years this area will feature modern living, learning, shopping and dining for Purdue students and the surrounding community.”
