Henley Road Student Residences

Addressing a Critical Need for Student Housing in New York City

We partnered with St. John’s University to deliver much needed off-campus, quality student housing. Leveraging our private sector relationships, we discretely assembled six properties in Jamaica Estates in Queens, in proximity to the University campus.

We led both entitlement and financing of the project, as well as oversaw the design and construction. Within two and a half years, the new 500-bed building was open for students and the University gained an efficient and modern housing facility.
