The School of Mines and Technology is once again expanding to accommodate its growing housing need.
Rockers Square 2, which is named after the Hard Rockers, will be a 6-floor, 136 unit complex located next to Rockers Square 1.
While dirt is currently being turned on the East Saint Joseph Street lot, developer Hani Shafai says construction on the new building won't begin for another two weeks. Shafai says he won't know the exact cost of the project until it's complete but estimates it will have a high price tag.
"The total cost of the whole complex might be in the range of about $15 million or so," said Shafai, President of Dream Design, Inc.
This tech housing project is expected to wrap-up by Mid-July so upper classmen can start to move in.
