BYU housing officials met with interested Provo residents Thursday evening at a Provo City meeting to discuss upcoming construction on campus.
The BYU Board of Trustees has approved the construction of four new buildings that will be used as residence halls on the site where Deseret Towers once stood.
Concepts and designs for the halls are still in the preliminary stages and could change, but current plans call for four stories above ground. Each building will house 186 students in apartment-style units that will hold four or six students each. Each unit will have a kitchen.
The architects for the project are Architectural Nexus of Salt Lake City; contractors have yet to be hired. The project should be under way this spring and could be completed in about 18 months.
