The building is being developed by International House, a private, non-profit residence and program center for graduate students, research scholars, trainees, and interns, headquartered at 500 Riverside Drive.
The new eight-story building will house 124 units for graduate students. Once complete, it will replace a one-story garage. Construction is expected to begin this year.
Additional features of the new development at 171 Claremont Avenue will include a ground floor communal lounge, a private interior courtyard, energy-efficient electrical systems and a green roof.
