Spectrum Advances Bellingham Student Housing Development

Spectrum Development Solutions continues to move ahead toward the Fall 2021 opening of Stateside, a 164-unit, 513-bed property in Bellingham. The developer hired Austin, TX-based Campus Advantage to manage the state-of-the-art, off-campus student housing property under development near Western Washington University.

Stateside will provide an eco-friendly, imaginative, and people-centric approach to help residents get the most out of their student experience. The property at 929 N. State St. will feature two buildings and will include a sky lounge, social lounge, study space, fitness room, bike and car parking, underground parking, community kitchen, courtyard, and 1,100 square feet of retail space.

Unit configurations will include studios; two bedrooms/one bathroom; three bedrooms/two bathrooms; and four bedrooms/two bathrooms in a highly amenitized setting.

Campus Advantage provided more than two years of consulting services to the development team for the project, including input on the amenity package and offerings.
