Catamount Run will add more than 550 beds at City Center by Fall 2025
The University of Vermont held a groundbreaking ceremony today for a new housing development, Catamount Run, to be constructed in South Burlington’s City Center in partnership with The Braverman Company and Snyder Homes.
Catamount Run will add more than 550 total beds – primarily for graduate students, faculty, and staff – to UVM’s housing options. Phase I of the project will involve the completion of roughly half the units (well over 250 beds) by next summer, with the additional units being finished and ready for occupancy by Fall 2025.
“We are excited to break ground on this important project for our students and employees, adding much-needed housing to the area,” UVM President Suresh Garimella said. “We want to sincerely thank our partners on Catamount Run, and the City of South Burlington for its foresight in developing City Center with such a strong focus on housing.”
“Additional housing capacity is a critical need for our local communities and for our growing economy,” said Helen Riehle, chair of the South Burlington City Council, “We’re so pleased to welcome new residents from UVM to City Center. This is a very good development for South Burlington, and we’re thrilled to see the project getting underway today.”
Located minutes from UVM’s main campus, Catamount Run is the latest addition to one of northern Vermont’s most thriving development areas. Since its designation as a New Town Center for Vermont in January 2010, City Center has been transformed by the addition of significant new housing options, a new public library and City Hall, a public park and recreational path, multiple shared-use indoor and outdoor spaces and more.
How nice for them. How much of that money is tax dollars given by the state since it is a state University? That could have gone to a much needed cause like low income housing or gee maybe the homeless problem!
I hope the students & faculty will demonstrate “equity” and voluntarily relinquish at LEAST 50% of their own units to the homeless and formerly incarcerated, and to Undocumented Democrats – formerly known as: Illegal Aliens.
…the cycle continues, as it has for the last 50 years…Burlington complains that UVM students are eating up too much of the rental market…UVM build more housing…UVM increases enrollment…Burlington complains…
