The face of north Everett is continuing to change as development continues in the area surrounding Everett Community College. Today’s announcement…a new student housing development.

Kōz Development, Inc., a Snohomish-based real estate development and architecture firm, announced today the acquisition of three key parcels within the Everett Community College master plan area. The parcels will be aggregated into one lot and will soon be home to the newest Everett Community College student housing facility. The project will consist of 120 student rooms, common areas for the residents to gather, and an outside courtyard. Kōz, partnering with a local investor, will retain ownership of the building.

“Kōz is honored to form this long-term partnership with Everett Community College. This project allows the College to create a housing experience attractive to their students while utilizing our capital to build the facility. It is a win-win for everyone involved.” said Kōz president & CEO Cathy Reines.

This project will fulfill a long-standing goal of the College by providing high-quality student housing.

“We’re happy to see this project move forward,” said EvCC president David Beyer. “The partnership with Kōz will result in a high-quality facility that will help meet the growing demand for housing, especially for our international students.”

The building was designed after meeting with a group of current EvCC students.

“We appreciate the opportunity to meet and talk with the students. It is always interesting to hear what is important to them and to design the building with their needs and wants in mind,” said Joshua Scott, Kōz VP overseeing design and construction.

Everett-based Kirtley-Cole Associates will break ground on the project on October 19th. A groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Oct. 22, 2015 at 1:30 p.m.
