AUSTIN - The student housing market has picked up dramatically in the past year with several projects being delivered in the past weeks at the University of Texas, after practically being at a standstill in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Two of the largest projects to open for the fall semester are Circle West Campus, at West 25th and Longview streets, and GrandMarc Austin, at 510 W. 26th St.
Mike McHone, a real estate agent who specializes in West Campus properties, estimates that less than a dozen people live in the area who aren’t students. By his estimation about 14,000 students call West Campus home.
