Gilbane Development Company has started construction on a 978-bed student housing project, known as Tempo, at The University of Maryland (UMD) in College Park, Maryland.

The eight-storey student community will include 296 units / 978 beds and will have 300 indoor parking spaces.

To be located at 8430 Baltimore Avenue, the project will be spread across a 2.05-acre site. It is less than 0.1 miles from the campus edge and is at a five-minute walk distance from the campus.

The student housing project will serve over 42% of UMD's undergraduate population.

Apart from public bikes and scooter parking stall, the project will feature a dedicated rideshare pick-up and drop-off space located on-site next to a covered pocket park.

Tempo said to be the first one to provide students in College Park with five-bedroom units.

It will offer private bedrooms with keyed entry and en suite bathrooms, in-unit washer/dryers, walk-in closets (in select units), stainless steel appliances, granite counters, high-speed internet (wired and wireless) and a flat-screen TV.

Gilbane Development Company senior vice president Russell Broderick said: “We are thrilled to bring this exciting new student community to College Park and The University of Maryland.

“The outstanding, walkable location combined with unrivalled amenities and unit design will provide UMD students with a truly superior community in which to live, learn, and thrive.

“We are proud to invest in the College Park and Prince George’s County community with Tempo and our additional local projects, which currently total more than $350 million in development.”

Tempo is scheduled to be opened for students to occupy by August 2022.
