50-unit student complex going up on South Division

Gillis Gilkerson has begun construction of The Gathering at Salisbury, a 50-unit student housing project at 1405 South Division St.

“We look forward to bringing something different to local students said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “This project provides the opportunity to meet a community need and allows Salisbury to grow with the college which is a vital part of our local economy.”

“Our development team looks for schools with good growth patterns and ones that have a need for off campus housing, said Jerry Passaro, developer, Jamestown Development Group.  “Salisbury University fit the mold.  Market demographics revealed all the right signs and signals for this project in the area and we found a good piece of property in proximity to the university.”

Upon completion, The Gathering at Salisbury will offer four beds per unit; 200 beds total, exterior patios for each unit, bus stop, a clubhouse, pool, exercise area and computer lab.

According to Project Manager, Jason Rudd, the units will be move-in ready by early August 2015.
