Allied Partners and SunWest Builders are proud to be wrapping the final touches at The Tower Theatre.

Whitaker’s outlook isn’t all doom and gloom. For instance, in 2023, the delivery pace should improve slightly to 31,000 beds, he said. That increase will be marked by a sharp rise in new development around urban schools in 2023, including the Georgia Institute of Technology, set to deliver 2,630 new beds that fall; the University of Texas at Austin, slated for 1,840 new beds; and the University of Washington, with 1,510 new beds expected.
