New student-housing complex planned near UT

A new student-housing complex may soon be under construction near the University of Toledo.

The 200-unit complex is being developed on the land formerly occupied by the Rocket Carry-Out on Dorr Street and Westwood. It will span eight buildings and consist of three lots.

â??Thereâ??s always room for it because I think there are a lot of kids that are scraping for places to live,â?? said University of Toledo student Ben Nielsen.

An outdoor pool, volleyball court, and clubhouse are also planned for the property.

The Planning Comission will review the site plans on August eighth. From there it goes to city council for final approval.
